The UNU Institute for Environment and Human Security (UNU-EHS) and the University of Bonn are accepting applications for the Joint International MSc Programme on “Geography of Environmental Risks and Human Security”.
The main purpose of this MSc programme is to provide postgraduate students with detailed knowledge, critical understanding, strategies and the tools required to take an interdisciplinary approach towards environmental risks and human security. The programme is derived from different research areas such as vulnerability assessment, resilience analysis, risk management and adaptation strategies within linked human–environment systems, and environmentally induced internal displacement and trans-boundary migration.
Once completed, this master’s degree will enable graduates to investigate and manage various resources related to natural disasters by implementing science-based principles and strategies from available theoretical and practical activities related to disaster risk management.
The application deadline is 28 February 2014. Applicants will be informed about the results of the selection process by the end of March/April.
