Environmental Studies

In order to successfully obtain a Masters qualification, you will need to obtain a number of credits by passing individual modules. Most taught Masters will have a number of core modules which you must take and pass in order to obtain the qualification. The assessment of research Masters is almost always entirely by a single dissertation module or project.

Environmental studies programs are designed to help students study how to use physical and biological science to solve problems with the environment. In a program, students study a range of different topics, including ecology, law, politics, natural resource management and pollution control.

France, officially the French Republic, is a unitary semi-presidential republic located mostly in Western Europe, with several overseas regions and territories.

Master Environmental Science and Policy (Dual Degree with Université Pierre-et-Marie-Curie-Paris-VI) General objectives To meet the environmental challenges of the next decades, the Dual Degree in Environmental Science and Policy relies on an interdisciplinary approach, inspired by the idea that practitioners trained in the economics of the environment and climatology, environmental modelling and environmental law will be better equipped to understand the complexity of the political, economic, scientific and democratic challenges of the environment, combine theoretical and practical knowledge and contribute to coordination between the different players in the field of the environment. Main orientations and specific features Throughout the study program, the Faculty, drawn from the most prestigious institutions (Université Pierre-et- Marie-Curie-Paris-VI, E‰cole normale supérieure, Ecole polytechnique and CEA), introduce students to cutting-edge techniques in the study of biodiversity, climate change and the “earth system” (ecology, climatology, biogeochemistry, modelling). Students acquire the theoretical knowledge they require to evaluate the state of the planet, identify and quantify the main parameters, prioritize the processes and assess the uncertainty of current knowledge. Whatever the career they choose, graduates will be capable of communicating with scientists and experts, using models and understanding their limitations. In parallel, an interdisciplinary social sciences team (political scientists, economists, legal experts and sociologists) will introduce students to sustainable development institutions and stakeholders and the economic, legal and financial tools of environmental regulation. Lastly, courses on the history and sociology of science, techniques and the environment and also of environmental philosophy give students the general knowledge they need to consider... [-]

This full-time 2-year Master's program is taught in English .The MDes "Mutations of the Built Environment" addresses the ongoing lifestyle evolutions in the domestic, work and public environment, with a strong focus on sustainable development.A focus on the Mutations of the Built Environment:As environnemental issues have grown into a major concern in our societies, evolutions in life style and uses have triggered drastic transformations as to how we conceive home, life space, work space, recreational facilities and public space. Interacting in these new types of enhanced spaces involves the use of all senses, and the role of technology in such a multi-sensory context must seriously be reflected upon. Design must invent and implement new life scenarios taking all these parameters into account so as to offer end-users more well-being while helping them adapt to new uses more easily.Areas of application:- workspace (offices, corporate buildings),- home space (interior design),- public space design,- design for all,- event/exhibition stand design...Prerequisites for enrollment:Bachelor’s Degree or equivalent in design (spatial, graphic, communication, interaction, mutimedia, product or industrial design) or interior architecture). You may apply before having actually obtained the herforementioned degree.A level of CEFR B2 in English is recommended.... [-]
