Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam
The enormous development of human civilization has left almost no species, countries or parts of the ocean untouched. In the one-year full-time English-language Master’s program Political Science: Global Environmental Governance you will concern yourself with the political aspects and implications of topics such as climate change, sustainability and nature. You will explore the field, familiarize yourself with current research and learn about the most important research traditions and approaches related to international environmental politics.
Protecting the environment might be the largest challenge of our time. Politicians and policy makers have to cooperate with multinationals, organizations and scientists to confront international environmental problems such as the increase in CO2 emissions and climate change. This creates a growing demand for researchers who are knowledgeable about international environmental politics. In the specialization Political Science: Global Environmental Governance you will learn about these things. The program offers intensive coaching by means of tutorials and workshops, each taught by qualified and internationally acclaimed lecturers.
