What does this master's programme entail?
In this new programme you will obtain in-depth knowledge of both the governance perspective (social science) and the natural sciences.

In addition, you will learn a variety of skills required to cope with wicked sustainability problems and to develop oneself into a future 'change agent' in a governance context.
