The program offers an interdisciplinary education on environmental issues, with a particular emphasis on development and ethical issues in a location characterized by diversity and variability. The material to be studied will focus on acquiring a solid understanding of both natural and human systems through the development of theories, methodologies and applied knowledge. It will also allow for the integration of different and traditionally separate perspectives of the natural sciences, social sciences and humanities. This approach places environmental issues at the heart of citizens’ concerns and society’s needs.
