What's it like to study at the Stockholm Resilience Centre?
We asked some of our former students to reflect on our Master's programme. What makes it unique and what can students expect from it?
Our 2-year Master’s programme in Social-Ecological Resilience for Sustainable Development will introduce you to the complexity of interactions between humans and nature.
The programme is a 2-year, full-time study where you attend four mandatory courses the first year that provide broad training in concepts, theories and methods for studying the complexities of social-ecological systems. In the second year, you will develop and conduct your own research.
This research will form the basis of your Master’s thesis which will relate to one or more of the research themes at the Stockholm Resilience Centre and usually compliments on-going research. Our ambition is that your research will be publishable in peer-reviewed journals.
