n the 21st century, as the world is increasingly aware of the pressing concerns facing nature and humanity, interdisciplinary training for understanding the relationship between human societies and nature is critically important. The Master’s Programme in Global environmental history offers such an arena.
When present issues such as biodiversity, environmental management, energy, sustainable development and social justice are crucial to human survival, global environmental history is a current and important topic. The Master’s Programme in Global Environmental History is intended to give you advanced theoretical and empirical knowledge of social scientific and humanistic analyses of relationships between man and nature. The interdisciplinary programme is a collaboration between the Departments of Archaeology and Ancient History, Art History, Economic History, Human Geography, and the Uppsala Centre for Sustainable Development (CSD Uppsala)/Centre for Environment and Development Studies (CEMUS) at Uppsala University, along with the Department of Urban and Rural Development at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences.
WHY THIS PROGRAMME?
As a student in the Master’s Programme in Global Environmental History, you will experience Uppsala University’s broad expertise in this field of research, with teachers who specialise in aspects of African, European, Asian and American environmental history. The programme provides an overview of long-term historical processes of interaction between human societies and natural conditions, and deeper insight into various aspects of how the relationship between man and nature has changed with the emergence of modern states and global power relations. During the programme, you will critically and independently identify and analyse key issues and debates in global environmental history and relate them to current problems of sustainability. The programme is concluded with a Master’s thesis that is supervised by teachers and researchers from various disciplines.
The Master’s Programme in Global Environmental History begins with an introductory multi-disciplinary semester where you will study a range of courses, giving you a good opportunity to tailor the educational programme without losing the broadness required by environmental history. The programme provides a good basis for further research studies, and will enable you to compete on a labour market that increasingly demands broad, interdisciplinary skills of social analysis in the environmental field.
You will attain a Master Degree in Global Environmental History and develop a strong foundation in the chosen disciplines of the collaborating institutions. Within the programme, you are given the opportunity to participate in international student exchange programmes and research networks established by the collaborating departments, and will also be able to undertake fieldwork abroad.
The programme leads to a Master of Arts (120 credits) with Global Environmental History as the main field of study.
A Bachelor’s degree, equivalent to a Swedish Kandidatexamen, from an internationally recognised university. The main field of study must be within the Faculty of Arts, the Faculty of Social Sciences or the Faculty of Science and Technology.
