Climate change and the green transition bring new challenges to technological, economic, political, and social relations and circumstances.

There is a growing need to solve complex problems of the future and the sustainability crisis at the interface between people and technology. Society and people depend on the functioning of energy, water, and food systems. Making these sociotechnical systems more sustainable, just and equitable for people and nature globally and locally is at the heart of this master’s programme.  
As a social scientist with a strong multidisciplinary background, you will gain knowledge and a wide range of skills to analyse social, economic, political, and technological aspects of energy, water, and food-related systems and develop these systems towards resource sustainability.
You can work in a variety of managerial and expert roles. Job titles may include public relations manager, business unit manager, consultant, sustainability expert or data analyst.
The programme also invites you to engage with entrepreneurs and associations, enabling you to build networks and learn from real-life cases.
The delivery of courses is blended, and the programme is a combination of on-campus and online studies.

This master's programme will start in autumn 2024. More information about the programme will be posted on this page during spring 2023.
