Environmental Studies

A masters is the first level of graduate coursework and can be obtained after you receive a bachelor’s degree. Earning a masters usually requires two years of full-time study, which amounts to 36 to 54 semester credits.

 

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.

Taiwan, officially the Republic of China, is a state in East Asia and the first constitutional republic in Asia. Taiwan has several good universities, many of which have exchange agreements with foreign universities, and these are a good way to experience life in Taiwan.

Top Master's Programs in Environmental Studies in Taiwan. International Master Program on Natural Hazards Mitigation and Management (iNHMM) is an all-English master degree program which focuses on learning of causes of natural disasters and their preventions. Our goal is to promote the awareness of risk management and preparedness of civic defense, and further achieve the higher goal of corresponding education. Due to climate change, natural disasters occur around the world with a even stronger strength and at higher frequency. The damages of lives and properties become an eminent issue that cannot be ignored. To better cope with this situation, a strong background of inter-disciplined training and knowledge is necessary to prevent, prepare, and recover all the events related to the natural hazards. iNHMM program combines the resources of NCKU Disaster Prevention Research Center, NCKU Hydro-Science and Technology Research Center, NCKU Soil and Water Conservation and Ecological Engineering Research Center and Taiwan Ocean Research Institute, National Science and Technology Center for Disaster Reduction, APEC Research Center for Typhoon and Society and Taiwan Typhoon and Flood Research Institute. Program Objectives To teach students the knowledge of management and prevention for various natural disaster To strengthen the abilities of disaster management and prevention policy formulation To fulfill the goal of disaster prevention education Course Map Curriculum CLIMATE CHANGE AND COPING STRATEGY IN NATURAL HAZARDS INFORMATION SYSTEM IN NATURAL HAZARDS SPECIAL TOPICS ON LANDSLIDE-RELATED DISASTERS RISK EVALUATION AND MANAGEMENT IN NATURAL HAZARDS INTRODUCTION TO DISASTER MITIGATION AND MANAGEMENT MITIGATION METHOD AND TECHNOLOGY IN HYDRO-METEOROLOGICAL...
