MSc in Science for Sustainable Development, 120 credits
The two-year master’s programme in Science for Sustainable Development aims at providing students with knowledge on environmental change and the challenges of creating a sustainable society for a professional career within research or outside academia.
Issues of sustainability are inherently complex and constantly changing. It is therefore crucial to address these issues from an interdisciplinary perspective. Core courses are designed to broaden the students’ perspective on questions and challenges related to sustainable development, and at the same time provide opportunities to deepen knowledge in relevant fields. Students also learn how to use relevant analytical tools for studies of environmental change.
The master’s programme in Science for Sustainable Development is the only one of its kind to be assessed as “very high quality” in the review by the Swedish Higher Education Authority.

Programme specific requirements
A relevant background for the programme is a degree in either natural sciences, social sciences, health sciences, humanities or engineering that relates to environmental, social or economic aspects of sustainable development.
Each applicant must enclose a letter of intent written in English, explaining why they want to study this programme, and a summary of their bachelor's essay or project. If applicants hold a degree that does not include a bachelor's essay or project, then their letter of intent should describe previous studies and any other academic activities related to the master's programme.
All supporting documents, including the letter of intent and the specific paper, should be submitted to University Admissions in Sweden.
As of this year there are two ways to submit your documents to University Admissions – you can send them in via regular post or you can upload them on Universityadmissions.se. Please note that for some specific countries, Sweden requires applicants to send in certified copies of their academic documents through the regular mail. It is therefore important that you check what is required for your country: Academic qualifications requirements for my country.
