  • 2018•10•31     Bonn

    In October, 21 students entered the Joint Master’s Programme in Geography of Environmental Risks and Human Security as the Class of 2018–2020. These MSc students come from 13 countries and a diverse range of backgrounds, with experience in governmental, inter-governmental, and non-profit sectors working on various environmental risks issues.

    The programme is jointly offered by the United Nations University Institute for Environment and Human Security (UNU-EHS) and the Geographical Institute of the University of Bonn. It provides a unique combination of advanced conceptual and applied engagements with the field of environmental risks and human security in an international context.

    After their studies are completed, graduates may pursue a PhD or work for worldwide organisations in the areas of risk management, environmental sustainability, and/or urbanisation and resilience, applying the knowledge and experience they will gain from the programme.

    Under a faculty from both UNU-EHS and University of Bonn, the class of 2018–2020 will study for three semesters, which includes an internship. The final semester will be devoted to working on a master’s thesis.
