LUMES outline

 

Programme duration and outline

The LUMES programme has a total duration of 2 years, divided in 4 semesters.

The first term provides a foundation for understanding global to local sustainability challenges, providing both the basic knowledge required for understanding how natural systems functions and interact, and the social theories that help us understand our present societal development paths. In addition, the field of sustainability science is introduced and scrutinised. The second term is comprised of perspectives in governance and development, using cases in global and local place-based contexts to both apply the programme foundations and provide a basis for the remainder of the programme. The third term studies involve a choice of modules dealing with different sustainblity themes. The fourth term comprises a Master's thesis of 30 credits.
