The need to combine natural and cultural sciences on environmental issues, and to foster new generations with the ability to address scientific problems from innovative perspectives, will not diminish. The education offered at WES is characterised by the interrelations of perspectives, theories, techniques and methods from different academic disciplines and traditions, which gives the subject an integrated view of the environmental issues.
Programmes and single subject courses are offered at all levels with a pronounced progression within and between them. The involvement of researchers ensures an up to date dissemination of present research at all educational levels, including relevant theoretical and methodological knowledge as well as the latest research results. This includes the ability to critically approach current challenges for sustainable development from various perspectives, as well as skills to use relevant analytical tools.
The education offered includes
• single subject courses in Geography, Environmental Studies and Thematic Science
• an undergraduate program in Environmental Studies
• a graduate program (Msc. for Sustainable Development)
• a PhD program in Water and Environmental Studies.
