The aim of the programme is to provide the candidates with theoretical and methodological skills enabling them to qualify for a Master's Degree. The programme addresses environmental, social and economic sustainability challenges in a global perspective.
The topics are related to issues of relevance for the study of livelihoods and environmental problems in the global South. The courses aim at introducing the candidates to contemporary scientific discourses on human-nature relations and development, and provide them with analytical skills and critical thinking. The thesis is normally based on data produced though fieldwork in the global South.
