This double degree master's integrative approach toward two expert fields equips you to better address today's grand, sustainability challenges from a psychologist's perspective.

The programme, exceptional in Europe and beyond, is offered by Leuphana University, renowned in the field of sustainability science and the University of Groningen, leading in the field of environmental psychology.

In general, the combined programme covers 1) human perception and behaviour related to sustainable development, and 2) the interplay between humans and their natural and built environments.

Specifically, the double degree addresses social, economic, and environmental issues in the transition towards sustainability and focuses on psychological processes such as problem-solving, decision-making, self-regulation, social identification, attitude change, or conflict resolution and their impacts on present and future generations’ quality of life.
