The United Nations University Institute for Environment and Human Security (UNU-EHS) and the Department of Geography at the University of Bonn (GIUB) are pleased to announce the call for applications for the international joint MSc programme “Geography of Environmental Risks and Human Security”.

The main purpose of the two-year Master of Science 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 Master’s programme addresses theoretical and methodological debates in geography to better understand the complex emergence of environmental risks and natural hazards, their implications for human-nature relations (vulnerability, resilience, adaptation), and how to deal with them in practice. It provides a unique combination of advanced conceptual and applied engagements within the field of environmental risks and human security in an international context. An internship of at least eight weeks is a compulsory part of the programme.

UNU-EHS and the Department of Geography at the University of Bonn welcome applicants who possess a first academic degree (Bachelor’s or equivalent) in Geography or a related relevant discipline.

SCHOLARSHIP OPPORTUNITY: The programme is part of a select group of international postgraduate degrees that benefit from the EPOS funding scheme offered by the DAAD. A number of fully-funded scholarships offered to students from developing countries.

Applications close 15 Dec!
