The Sustainability Studies is an interdisciplinary programme that includes subjects from area of science, social science as well as humanities. Since we believe that only such a wide spectrum of subjects provides an integrated picture of complex phenomenon of sustainability. The basic subjects taught during the course cover the issues connected with: environmental economy, ecology, bioarchaeology, environmental law, environmental ethics and bioethics.
After graduation, the graduate has interdisciplinary knowledge about the complex phenomenon of sustainability. During the 4-semester Master studies our students will be taught about sustainability from two complementary perspectives, i.e. scientific and humanistic. The former will help them to understand processes taking place in the natural environment, while the latter will provide them with the tools necessary for a holistic understanding of the natural environment as well for effective problem solving. The curriculum is specially designed so as to enable students to experience interdisciplinary learning, extending over various fields of the humanities and natural sciences. Interdisciplinary learning provides students with an environment to develop their flexible thinking skills as well as the ability to think from a broader perspective - the two factors which are most important when considering the issues of sustainability and the environment.
After completing the program the graduates have all necessary skills to analyse, understand and seek solutions to the complex issues of sustainability. They understand the specificity of sustainable development and know how to implement it on a local level. The graduates are highly skilled to work in an international environment and have a very high expertise in communicating in English. They can make a substantial contribution to developing environmental projects, as well as be valuable assets to NGOs, government agencies, individual clients, small or medium-sized enterprises or the academia.
After completing the program the graduates are prepared to take jobs that require advanced planning skills and involve strategic, innovative and creative thinking, taking analytical and critical approach to problem solving as well as having sufficient knowledge of the traditions, experiences and practice of sustainable development. The graduates of Sustainability Studies’ are future leaders and highly qualified experts in sustainability. They are well prepared to work in:
• international business environment;
• staff/leadership sections of environmental organizations;
• local, state, national or international governmental agencies;
• non-governmental organizations;
• the R+D sector or the academia.
A growing importance of sustainable development is the main reason why we have created the programme which will deliver highly qualified experts capable of assuming the roles of leaders on the way to sustainability.
