Social-Ecological Resilience for Sustainable Development

This 2-year Master's programme aims to enhance students' knowledge of the complex interactions between ecological and social systems.

This programme attracts top international students and courses are firmly embedded in the research at the centre.

In the programme, students are introduced to multiple research approaches and methods for studying coupled social and ecological systems.

The programme admits 15 students each year and includes one year of courses and a traineeship, and one year spent doing a Master's thesis. The four mandatory courses during the first year are designed to define the challenges we face today and reflect on how resilience thinking can be applied to social-ecological systems to solve real-life problems.

During the second year, students write up their theses. These are mainly incorporated in on-going research projects and are all related to one of the research themes at the Stockholm Resilience Centre. We aim for graduates to publish their research in peer-reviewed journals.

The programme starts each Autumn term.
