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.
