Climate change, loss of biodiversity, and the possible transition towards a low carbon society trigger political conflicts within the nations and across the globe. What does the concept of sustainable energy really include? How do the challenges regarding new energy systems affect a society?

This Master’s programme raises the fundamental questions of what sustainable energy might be and what a low carbon transition might look like from different perspectives.

The program is highly relevant to both the public sector and the private sector. Knowledge about sustainable development, energy and environmental challenges are expected to increase sharply in the future. Such social change also requires new ways of thinking. In-depth knowledge in these areas will therefore be on high demand. The multidisciplinary approach of this master will undoubtedly strengthen the relevance of social science graduates for both public and private sectors.

Through this programme students will gain advanced knowledge of national and international energy politics and policy and, among other things, analyse the relationships between energy, risk, societal safety and sustainable development.
