International Master's Programme in Environmental Social Science

Programme duration: 2 years (120 ECTS credits)

University: Stockholm University

Programme website: International Master's Programme in Environmental Social Science

More

Environmental social science is the interdisciplinary study of what governs people?s behaviour, beliefs and ways of organising themselves in relation to the natural environment. It focuses on understanding the social processes that either lead to environmental change or are a reaction or adaptation to such change.The field of research explores how, where and at what levels of society decisions relating to the environment are made. How can various types of political, financial, social and cultural control of social processes affecting the environment be achieved at the local, national and global levels?The programme in environmental social science discusses how science, policies and practices interact with power relations. How are environmental issues and their solutions defined and understood, and how does vulnerability create unequal conditions? The first semester of the programme includes four obligatory, interdisciplinary courses that provide an introduction to environmental social science research. The second and third semesters consist of optional advanced courses from various social science disciplines, in addition to obligatory method courses worth a total of 15 credits. The main field of study is chosen towards the end of the first semester. The degree project constitutes 30 credits and is written during the fourth semester. In the second and third semesters, it is also possible to do an internship worth 15 credits.Since the degree can only be issued in a main field of study in which the student has been awarded at least 60 credits, the programme offers three possible master?s degrees: Human geography with a specialisation in environmental social science, Social anthropology with a specialisation in environmental social science, and Political science with a specialisation in environmental social science. In order to be awarded a degree in the main field of study, the student is required to have completed 15 credits of method courses, 15 credits of advanced courses, and 30 credits of a degree project in the relevant main field of study.

Research in materials chemistry aims at design and control of the relationships between structure, composition, processing and properties of all materials. The rapid evolution of our ability to probe and observe materials at very small length scales together with the development of novel (micro and nano) fabrication methods now give us the possibility to integrate atomic and molecular-level design with new and improved approaches for assembly and structural design at larger length-scales. The Master´s programme in Materials Chemistry will build on our strength in solid-state chemistry, which will be utilized in courses that introduce the students to versatile materials synthesis strategies. The design of nano-structured materials from novel combinations of molecular building blocks, templating molecules, nano-particles and various functional molecules is a running theme in several of the courses where a deep understanding of the structure-property relations at all length-scales is of pivotal importance.The first compulsory course given in the program is an introduction to materials chemistry and characterisation techniques. This introduction treats the synthesis and characterisation of inorganic based materials. A number of important characterisation methods will be introduced and used in the experimental part of the course. The following compulsory courses contain i) crystal structure determination by diffraction techniques, and ii) the relation between crystal structure symmetry and properties. This relation is a common theme throughout the programme. After these three compulsory courses you can freely chose between topics within the programme. The programme ends with a degree thesis project of 30, 45 or 60 ECTS-credits.

Master's Programme in Mathematics is a joint programme between The Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) and Stockholm University, and it leads to a joint Master's degree.Mathematics, together with astronomy, is one of the oldest sciences, and is more important now than ever before. New methods are developed continuously, and old problems are solved. Mathematics is a critical element in the development of society: with mathematics it is possible to calculate planetary orbits, to describe the growth of the world population, and to predict the melting pattern of the Arctic glaciers.Mathematical education is applicable in all fields where advanced mathematical methods are used. Examples include numerical calculations in technology and natural sciences, estimation of probability, price setting in the financial sector and the development of algorithms used to ensure secure transfer of data.The courses in the programme are organized in three different blocks, followed by a Master's thesis. Each block corresponds to 30 ECTS. The blocks are evenly distributed over the study period, and are not taken in sequential order.In the first block one course is chosen from each of the following subjects: algebra and geometry, analysis, topology, discrete mathematics. The second block allows the student to specialize and get prepared for the Master's thesis. The third block includes compulsory courses in scientific methodology and in mathematical communication, and 15 ECTS courses of free choice.
