Overview

The University of Venice offers a MSc (Master of Science/Laurea Magistrale) degree in "Environmental Sciences" which includes three available study plans; among them, the Global Environmental Change is taught entirely in English (http://www.unive.it/nqcontent.cfm?a_id=170980)

Joint degree

The Msc programme in Enviromental Sciences offers the possibility of getting a Joint Master's Degree in Sustainable Development (http://www.unive.it/nqcontent.cfm?a_id=75952).
The programme offers an interdisciplinary approach, combining the specialisation in teaching and research of 6 partner universities: Graz (Austria), Ca' Foscari Venice, Leipzig (Germany), Utrecht (the Netherlands), Basel (Switzerland), and Hiroshima (Japan).
Admission to the programme is open to students holding the equivalent of an undergraduate/first cycle degree programme (Italian Laurea triennale), who will be selected on the basis of their research skills, basic knowledge of natural and/or social sciences, and a general insight in the subject of sustainable development and intervention strategies.

The study plans

The programme unfolds into three semesters of full-time lectures and lab experience. The last semester is dedicated to the development of individual projects and of the thesis, supervised by a department member. Each study plan is organized around a set of core courses, two elected activities and a final examination, in which the candidates will defend the thesis.

Students can choose among three study plans:

Global Environmental Change [English-taught Programme], which provides a thorough understanding of Earth System dynamics, taking a holistic and systemic approach, which also include the social and economic systems.
