Teaching method

The programme for the Master in Science and Environmental Management includes a group of courses which are designed to provide students with basic knowledge of the different disciplines involved in the management of environmental problems and sustainable development. A significant proportion of the courses are organized by different partner faculties. In this way, courses are given by specialists from each discipline.

The training programme particularly focuses on encouraging students to use their knowledge and skills, through different kinds of individual and group work and also through a large-scale exercise (ENVI 2101, 9 credits) in which students gather evidence about the many different aspects of a real environmental problem they are faced with: they have to become negotiators of technical, soci-economic and institutional solutions between all the involved parties.

Finally, the professional work placement provides a break from academic training, allowing students to put their knowledge and skills into practice to find solutions to real environmental issues.
