Teaching is a core component of the FFU’s mission. The FFU is known across Europe and globally for its environmental policy and politics courses. The FFU team, visiting guest professors, and professional experts from business, politics, and the government, offer one of Europe’s most comprehensive set of courses focused on environmental politics, policy, political economy, and society.
Students can choose from a wide variety of general and more specialized environmental, energy, sustainability, and climate courses in the social sciences. Master’s and PhD students come from around the world to obtain their degrees at the FFU. The FFU provides a mix of theoretical and more applied courses and training programs and provides opportunities for students to deepen their research skills through participation in FFU projects and programs as well as through cooperation with the many environmental think tanks and organizations in Berlin. Courses are offered in both German and English. Graduates of the FFU go on to obtain jobs in academia, government, non-governmental organizations, and industry.
The FFU actively promotes international exchange of its students, researchers, and teachers. The FFU team — researchers and students alike — are encouraged to take advantage of the many international cooperative research programs and exchange opportunities we offer to them around the world.
