Master Environmental Management
Public and Private Environmental Management - unfortunately we don't offer this Master's Program currently
|The Environmental Master’s Program at the FFU was designed by an inter-disciplinary group of scholars from political science, law, and business and is coordinated by Kirsten Jörgensen. The FFU’s Environmental Master’s program trains students to become professionals with an interdisciplinary understanding of the complex factors influencing environmental governance. Globally, the demand for environmental experts with a knowledge and understanding of the factors that promote good environmental governance are growing.|
The FFU team trains students in the skills required to address the many serious governance challenges facing the global community today, including biodiversity loss, climate change, toxic pollution, air and water pollution and water scarcity. Master’s students learn in close contact with their classmates and instructors. Experts from business, law, and politics offer special sessions on recent environmental legal, political, and business developments to the students. Team projects are encouraged. In addition, students are expected to participate in an environmental internship during the program.
The FFU’s Environmental Master’s program prepares students for leadership positions in government agencies, non-profit organizations, environmental think tanks, and private corporations. The program attracts students from all parts of the globe. Courses are offered in both German and English.
