Master's Programme in Geographies of Sustainable Development

Course Information

How can Himalayan farmers adapt to climate change? How should African fisheries be governed to ensure access to nutritious fish on the plates of the poor? Are Latin American cities prepared for green transitions? The Master Programme in Geographies of Sustainable Development equips students with theoretical tools and methodological training to enquire into multiple research questions related to global development.

The aim of the programme is to provide the candidates with theoretical and methodological skills enabling them to qualify for a Master's Degree. The topics are related to issues of relevance for the study of livelihoods and environmental problems in the global South. The courses aim at introducing the candidates to contemporary scientific discourses on human-nature relations and development, and provide them with analytical skills and critical thinking. The thesis is normally based on data produced though fieldwork in the global South.
