This Master’s programme offers you the opportunity to specialize in environmentally related communication and politics, ecosystem management, or the control of infectious diseases. It focuses on helping you develop a multidisciplinary knowledge base, analytical skills and to the ability to use theoretical approaches to major environmental issues.

The broad scope of this programme, on which issues related to the environment, communication, politics, and health are studied in a holistic way, is good preparation for subsequent employment or for further research. It also offers you the opportunity to identify and reflect on your own knowledge and attitudes in relation to different theories and ideas in the environmental sciences, generating both personal and academic development.

This degree programme has three specializations, which combine the natural and social sciences: Environment, Communication, and Politics; Ecosystem Management; and Infectious Disease Control. Some courses are common to all three, including the final Master's dissertation, courses on research methods, methodologies, and theories of science applied to Environmental Science, as well as a course on environmental risks.
