Second level studies (Master's programme)
Stockholm Resilience Centre runs one current Master's programme and two previous programmes.
The current 2-year Master´s Programme in Social-Ecological Resilience for Sustainable Development trains students to conduct problem-driven transdisciplinary environmental research. The four mandatory courses are designed with an emphasis on resilience - the ability to deal with change and continue to develop.
Students will be introduced to multiple research approaches and methods for studying coupled social and ecological systems.
The programme focuses on using systems based methods to develop new approaches to the governance and management of social-ecological systems. This programme starts every Autumn term.
