Since winter term 2013, the Environmental Policy Research Centre at the Freie Universität Berlin and the Environmental Assessment & Planning Research Group at the Technische Universität Berlin offer an interdisciplinary master's program called
“Master of Arts in Environmental Policy and Planning”.
Environmental and climate change is one of the most severe challenges facing humankind today and requires new skills from decision-makers and those that advise them. All over the world the demand for environmental experts with a strong background in social sciences, in particular policy and planning is growing steadily as the ability to provide accurate political analysis and professional skills in developing integrated plans and long-term-oriented strategies becomes increasingly valuable. Experts and decision-makers who seek to create innovative solutions to today’s complex problems need the knowledge and skills of not just one discipline but several. Successful solutions arise from careful policy analysis, impact assessment and planning capabilities. Our Master’s Program “Environmental Policy and Planning” responds to these challenges by combining the fields of political science and planning.
Our students benefit from an internationally vibrant networking research and higher education communities at both the Environmental Policy Research Centre at the Freie Universität Berlin and the Environmental Assessment & Planning Research Group at the Technische Universität Berlin.
