Learning outcomes include a solid understanding of key aspects of these disciplines and of the complex issues with which professionals are often confronted. Furthermore, the course will foster an awareness not only of the science of environmental and/or rural science concerns, but also of their ethical, sociological and economic dimensions.
Throughout the course, participants will be trained in a range of skills from both the natural and social sciences, enabling them to critically address their area of research specialization in a holistic and integrated fashion. Students will also gain experience in practical applications through hands-on projects throughout the course, and will also be able to focus on an area of particular interest to them through directed study units and through their dissertation research.
