Core courses

"The courses cover a broad range of topics – from climate change and biodiversity loss to feminism and colonisation. Also, the students are from all over the world – it’s not only fun to be exposed to such a huge diversity of cultures, but in the class, it actually feels like a global cooperation in tackling these issues!" Karolina Gurjazkaite, Student

Core courses have been designed to give you a wide perspective on environmental issues, and at the same time, provide opportunities to deepen your theoretical knowledge and practical skills on specific scientific fields. Field trips, laboratory and GIS exercises, spatial analysis in the Norrköping Decision Arena, role-play activities, study visits to authorities and businesses in the environmentally-progressive Östergötland province are just some of the ways in which you will learn about sustainable solutions in practice. You will have the opportunity to undertake internships at businesses, organisations or research institutes in Sweden or abroad and develop skills in multidisciplinary research together with our teaching staff. Our teaching profile is integrated with advanced research in sustainable development and environmental sciences and researchers at our institute will guide you individually to design, plan and perform your master’s thesis project.
