  • 2014•12•17     Bonn

    The United Nations University Institute for Environment and Human Security (UNU-EHS) and the Department of Geography of 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 MSc 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 programme is derived from different research areas such as vulnerability assessment, resilience analysis, disaster and risk management and adaptation strategies within linked human–environment systems; and environmentally induced internal displacement and trans-boundary migration. Once completed, this Master’s Degree will enable graduates to investigate and manage various resources related to natural hazards by implementing science-based principles and strategies from available theoretical and practical activities related to disaster risk management.

    UNU-EHS and GIUB welcome applicants who possess a first, higher education qualification (Bachelor’s Degree) in Geography or a related/comparable professionally certified study programme. Candidates with a strong interest or experience in environmental sciences and international organizations and structures would be ideal. Women and applicants from developing countries are strongly encouraged to apply.
