Master "Geography of Environmental Risks and Human Security"


A new master’s degree programme in the Geography of Environmental Risks and Human Security was launched in autumn 2013, with the aim of providing 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 was developed by the United Nations University Institute for Environment and Human Security (UNU-EHS) and the Department of Geography of the University of Bonn (GIUB)

Building on the success and capability of existing research programmes on social and environmental vulnerability and risk management at both UNU-EHS and GIUB, the two-year MSc programme will educate students on how to investigate and manage various resources related to environmental hazards by implementing science-based principles and methodologies to disaster risk management.
