Program description

The MSc Climate Studies is targeted to students who wish to focus on the scientific insights in facing climate change and on social economic implications of climate change.

During the last decade, it has become apparent that the world is facing significant changes in climate, some of which are already manifested today. The debate is no longer about: “Will our climate change?” but rather about “How will it change, how can we cope with its impacts (adaptation), and how can we influence climate change on the long run (mitigation)?” These issues fuel a range of new challenges to natural and social science. The MSc programme Climate Studies (Earth System Science) addresses those questions. Answers need to be found on questions such as: How will ecosystems be affected and how will these feed back to the climate system? How will national and international political agendas be set by climate change issues? How will citizens, consumers, companies, and other social actors respond to climate change? What will be the economic costs of the impacts and measures related to climate change, and how are these costs globally distributed? Will new social and economic opportunities emerge in the process of adaptation? As these changes and challenges become ever more apparent, the demand for scientists that are able to understand and investigate them will rise.
