Floods, earthquakes and drought – extreme weather conditions are becoming more and more common. This is happening in parallel with global social change, urbanization and growing slums. The Master’s Programme in Globalization, Environment and Social Change aims to provide students with an interdisciplinary approach to investigating global environmental and social change. The programme provides students with the opportunity to combine theory and practice, and the ability to seek answers to their questions through their own field work.

How do vulnerable communities adapt to increased rainfall and tropical cyclones? How can we improve the sanitary conditions in rapidly growing slums? Our students study places and people around the world to explore the relationship between globalization, environment and social change.
