The aim of Sustainability Studies is to ensure that the graduates of the programme know how to deal with the complex issues related to sustainability. During the 4-semester Master studies our students will be taught about sustainability from two complementary perspectives, i.e. scientific and humanistic. The former will help them to understand processes taking place in the natural environment, while the latter will provide them with the tools necessary for a holistic understanding of the natural environment as well for effective problem solving.
The curriculum is specially designed so as to enable students to experience interdisciplinary learning, extending over various fields of the humanities and natural sciences. Interdisciplinary learning provides students with an environment to develop their flexible thinking skills as well as the ability to think from a broader perspective – the two factors which are most important when considering the issues of sustainability and the environment.
