The official master's degree in Interdisciplinary Studies in Environmental, Economic and Social Sustainability takes place at the Institute for Environmental Science and Technology (ICTA), an interdisciplinary and international research centre which works with several UAB departments.

The master's degree offers fours different specialisations:

  1. Global Change
  2. Ecological Economics
  3. Urban and Industrial Ecology
  4. Environmental Technology (This specialisation will not be offered in the 2015/16 academic year)

Of the 60 credits, 30 belong to compulsory core subjects and the rest form part of each specialisation. This master's degree has been offered since the 1997/98 academic year.

Those interested in enrolling in this master's degree can apply for one of the grants offered by the Catalunya-La Pedrera Foundation for graduates enrolling in master's degrees. A total of 5,000 Euros is offered in one enrolment aid for this master's degree. To apply you must have an excellent student record, a Spanish passport and you must enrol in the course full-time.

The master's degree offers a mixed approach. On the one hand, it includes advanced course components for graduates of Environmental Sciences. On the other, it meets the needs of other graduates interested in incorporating environmental knowledge and skills into their ¡academic training, based on fields such as Ecological Economics and Environmental Management, Analysis of the Natural Environment, Environmental Technology, Industrial Ecology or Global Change, all of which are considered specialisations in this master's degree.

Once you complete the Master's degree in Interdisciplinary Studies in Environmental, Economic and Social Sustainability you will be qualified to work in private companies, research centres, institutions and NGOs as a specialist in the analysis and interpretation of environmental processes and problems, and also in integrating the relations between environmental phenomena and economic, social and cultural factors. Depending on your specialisation, professional career options include posts in public administration, environmental consultancies, production or engineering industries.
