The University of Bonn International Joint MSc Program 2022, Geography of Environmental Risks and Human Security is now accepting applications.
The two-year Master of Science program’s major goal is to provide postgraduate students with the precise information, critical understanding, tactics, and tools they’ll need to adopt an interdisciplinary approach to environmental threats and human security.
The Master’s program focuses on theoretical and methodological debates in geography in order to better understand the complex emergence of environmental risks and natural hazards, their implications for human-nature relationships (vulnerability, resilience, and adaptation), and how to deal with them in practice.
The course provides a unique combination of advanced conceptual and applied engagements within the field of environmental risks and human security in an international context as a joint program offered by the Department of Geography at the University of Bonn and the United Nations University in Bonn.
