MSc Global Change: Ecosystem Science & Policy
Location: UCD School of Biology and Environmental Science & Justus Liebig University (JLU), Giessen, Germany.
Duration: 16 months, Full time
Start date: September
Global change is occurring in complex socio-ecological systems. Understanding the intricate, medium- to long-term changes in our land, air and water requires advanced knowledge in measurement, modelling and prediction. Responding to these changes requires effective communication of the science in order to underpin innovative policies.
This Joint International MSc course is the response to these challenges and will suit skilled motivated science graduates wishing to develop a scientific career in ecosystem research as well as those aiming to contribute to evidence-based environmental policy.
This Masters Degree programme will train graduates in scientific methods to prepare policy-relevant information.
The focus will be on the latest scientific insights and modern research methods to address mitigation and adaptation needs for global environmental change. The philosophy of ‘policy-relevant evidence’ is to form the central core of the Masters programme which is equally suitable for graduates aiming at a scientific career as well as those aiming to contribute to evidence-based environmental policy making.
The Joint International Masters Degree in Global Change leads in both science and policy, training graduates to pursue a research career and at the same time to communicate directly with policy-making bodies.
