Sustainable Development is a fast growing discipline with areas of study, which complement such growth developing in tandem. It requires researchers who can collect and analyse information from multiple academic disciplines. Furthermore, they have to interpret those findings and translate their interpretation into action plans for policy and decision makers, contributing to the transformation and creation of policies and generation of reform.
For this reason, the MSc in Sustainable Development towards an Inclusive and Equitable Global Society: Economic, Sociocultural, Ecological Dimensions is an interdisciplinary programme presenting "alternative" narratives and paradigms in contrast to the dominant meta narratives across the key modules. The students will be free to collaborate with scholars across the various disciplines on original interdisciplinary research. In so doing, students will help create new fields of inquiry that will have a wide impact in many aspects of daily life.
The programme of study is organized to attain the following objectives:
In order to attain these objectives, students following the PhD programme work are monitored closely by one or more faculty members and/or experts from related fields of study. To this end, Dilemma Workshops shall be organised wherein papers will be evaluated and students will be required to demonstrate empirical, theoretical, structural and critical capabilities.
Further Information The MSc degree programme has been designed with a strongly formative character in mind and with sound theoretical foundations. To ensure a smooth transition for the student, collaborations and partnerships with a variety of industry players are in place so as to ensure relevant placement for the students’ research studies. To further promote industrial experience development, a student can also carry out the final project in collaboration with an industrial partner.
