The master program in Environmental Science and Sustainability from Linnaeus University is focused on the environmental domain of sustainable development but also considers the interrelated social and economic domains.
It aims to develop abilities to the independent use of scientific based information for the understanding of the environment and its degradation related to human activities and hazards, as well as for assessment of available and future mitigation options.
The programme is meant to provide practical (hands-on) experience and you will be encouraged to participate of on-going research projects at the Department of Biology and Environmental Science.
The knowledge acquired during the two years of the masters can be directly applied to environmental management and research projects and surveys, both within authorities and private enterprises, and is also designed to be an initial step for advanced studies at Ph.D. level.
