About

The Environmental Sciences, Policy and Management study programme is in English and lasts two years. The students study in at least three consortium universities: Central European University, the University of the Aegean, Lund University, the University of Manchester, Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey and the University of Saskatchewan. 

Overview

Key features

The Environmental Sciences, Policy and Management programme at Lund University prepares students for identifying and implementing solutions to complex environmental challenges, especially in an international context. It offers a comprehensive inter- and multi-disciplinary curriculum in environmental studies that challenges students' ability to integrate theory and practice for systematic analysis, holistic understanding, and management of diverse environmental issues in various social contexts. In addition to their academic work, students develop research, communication and other professional skills, learn to orient themselves in European and worldwide networks of environmental institutions and elaborate relevant career objectives and strategies.

The MESPOM study programme lasts two years. The fall and winter semesters of the first year are spent at Central European University, Budapest (from 2020 Vienna) and the spring semester - at the University of the Aegean, Greece. In summer, students take internships supervised by MESPOM faculty and hosted by Associated Partners or other organisations.  During the first half of the 2nd year students can choose to study at the International Institute for Industrial Environmental Economics at Lund University or at the School of Environmental and Atmospheric Sciences of the University of Manchester. The 4th (research) semester may be hosted by any of the Consortium partners, including our North American partners - Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey (MIIS) (USA) and the University of Saskatchewan (UoS) (Canada). 

Alumni and Careers

MESPOM graduates are employed in private companies, academic institutions, think tanks, consultancy organisations, the United Nations and other public international organizations and within the NGO sector. Many are are enrolled in PhD programs. More than one-half  of MESPOM alumni work with cross-cutting environmental issues, which require broad environmental competencies. The remaining MESPOM graduates work in areas almost equally split between energy and climate change and biodiversity conservation and ecosystems management, the two areas currently emphasised in MESPOM curriculum.

Programme Structure

Courses include:

  • mandatory and elective units focusing on scientific, technological, economic and political aspects of environmental challenges and the society-environment interaction
  • biodiversity, water, waste and land management including GIS and modelling tools
  • specialised tracks in either environmental strategies in the public and private sector (at IIIEE, Lund University) or environmental sciences and pollution control (at the SEAES, University of Manchester)
