Geography & Environment is launching a new MSc programme to train future sustainability leaders!

In the current challenging times, the need to make the world a safe and sustainable place is stronger than ever before. The Department of Geography & Environment is pro-actively responding to this need by launching a new programme – MSc in Sustainability Transitions. The programme is designed to train the future generation of experts who have the passion and ambition to deliver on the UN Sustainable Development Goals and become true sustainability leaders. As such, the programme addresses the needs of a variety of employers who are looking to embark on a path to sustainability.

To provide students with a comprehensive understanding of what sustainability transitions entail, the programme combines theoretical knowledge on environmental, economic and social aspects of sustainable development and sustainability transitions with important practical employment-ready skills such as policy development and project leadership. It covers an array of topics, addresses challenges faced by different sectors and utilises case studies drawn from various parts of the world – both more and less developed states. Students are taught not only by academics, but also by experts in a range of related fields, including energy transitions, coastal management, land management, tourism, and transport.

With Scotland being an unquestionable leader in the field of sustainability, and Aberdeen being ‘the energy capital of Europe’, there is no better place to study sustainability transitions than the North-East of Scotland.
