Are you concerned about environmental problems? Do you think it’s impossible to understand the environment without taking into account society, culture, economics and land organization? Would you like to train as a social science-focussed environmental researcher or professional?

Universidad Pablo de Olavide in Seville offers a Masters Degree in Social Sciences Applied to the Environment based on a multidisciplinary syllabus which includes aspects of anthropology, economics, geography, history, psychology and sociology. The course provides innovative epistemological, theoretical and methodological training to give students a comprehensive grasp of socio-environmental phenomena.

Taught by staff with extensive academic experience at both national and international level, this Masters Degree is mainly orientated towards research.

However, the training provided is equally useful for those wishing to forge a professional career in national or international institutions engaged in socio-environmental development and for professionals seeking to update their skills or earn an academic qualification to do with the links that exist between environment and society.
