Master's Programme

The School offers a two-year Master’s program with both M.A. and M.Sc. degrees in Environmental Studies. The School welcomes students from diverse disciplinary backgrounds, who are habitually curious, share a passion for environmental leadership and an aptitude for learning. All Master’s students are required to obtain at least 48 credits spread over 4 semesters, with a summer internship during the vacation between the first and second year and a dissertation in the last semester. M.A. or M.Sc. degrees are awarded based on the student’s undergraduate degree and selected elective courses.

Curriculum Framework

At the School of Ecology and Environment Studies, each course takes a holistic view of knowledge that incorporates comprehension, analytical and synthesis abilities, recognising opportunities for application in specific contexts and evaluation at different levels. While the core courses focus on knowledge, comprehension and articulation of core concepts related to ecology and environment, there is a wide range of electives that focus more on analysis, synthesis and application of knowledge. The pedagogy, therefore, emphasises learning, rather than teaching, through elaborate classroom participation, group work and individual projects. Evaluation, too, is diverse and designed to identify and improve specific aspects of learning.... [-]
