About the master's programme

During the last two decades it has been proven that environmental and climate changes are related to substantial physical and mental hazards of humans.
For an appropriate management of climate-, environment- and health-associated difficulties in near future, an emphasis must be given in the understanding of the correlation between environment, climate change and health from a scientific and educational point of view.

  • disease related to environmental and climate change
  • strategies to handle and prevent these medical conditions
  • mitigation and adaptation policies
  • interdependent responsibilities of policy, industry and general public
