Södertörn University has converted to distance education – no teaching on university premises from Wednesday 18 March

The Swedish Government recommends that after 18 March all higher education institutions move to distance education. Södertörn University has followed this recommendation and there will be no teaching on university premises until further notice. This is likely to apply throughout the spring semester. All written examinations will be replaced by other forms of examination for the entire spring semester. Students are asked to stay updated about their course or programme via SH-StudyWeb. Staff and students can access the university premises with their keycards and both Infocenter and the library are open. Please remember to maintain social distancing when on university premises. We have chosen to close all the group rooms in the library to reduce the risk of infection.

Why this programme?

A multidisciplinary approach to issues surrounding the environment and sustainability

Are you interested in learning more about sustainable development, policy, communication, risk, international health, and ecosystem management? Or in evaluating the potential impact of environmental research on societal values such as democracy, sustainable development and gender equality? This Master’s programme offers you the opportunity to specialise in environmentally related communication and politics, ecosystem management, or the control of infectious diseases. It focuses on helping you develop a multidisciplinary knowledge base, analytical skills and to ability to use theoretical approaches to major environmental issues.

The broad scope of this programme, on which issues related to the environment, communication, politics and health are studied in a holistic way, is a good preparation for subsequent employment or for further research. It also offers you the opportunity to identify and reflect on your own knowledge and attitudes in relation to different theories and ideas in the environmental sciences, generating both personal and academic development.
