Master’s Programmes

The Master of Science (M.Sc.) in “Geography of Environmental Risks and Human Security” is offered by UNU-EHS in close cooperation with the Department of Geography, Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences of the Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelms-University of Bonn as an international degree programme with a research-oriented profile.

The two-year programme educates students in an interdisciplinary and trans-disciplinary manner on how to investigate and manage various resources related to environmental hazards by implementing science-based principles and methodologies to disaster risk management.

It offers an in-depth introduction to problem-oriented research methods, theories and concepts as well as real life challenges and problems that international and UN organizations are facing. The curriculum draws from research areas such as vulnerability assessment, resilience analysis, risk management and adaptation strategies within linked human–environment systems, and environmentally induced internal displacement and transboundary migration.
