Viktig information inför din studiestart 

Vårterminen 2022 startar måndag den 17 januari.

Från och med måndag den 8 november 2021 kommer undervisningen på Högskolan i Gävle successivt att återgå till campus för de studenter som valt en campus-baserad utbildning. Även tentor (salsskrivning) kommer att kunna göras på campus.

Fortfarande kan undantag göras när det gäller stora klasser eller grupper, där man även i fortsättningen kan komma att använda zoom och andra digitala verktyg i undervisningen. Så även du som läser en campusutbildning kan komma att behöva ha tillgång till webbkamera och eventuellt headset.

Vi behöver vara vaksamma på pandemins utveckling och vi måste snabbt kunna anpassa vår utbildning efter smittläget. Regionala restriktioner kan fortfarande bli aktuella.

Welcome to study the Master in Sustainability Science - Environment and Decision Making at the University of Gävle. This text gives you a brief introduction to University studies and about the programme details.

To read at a distance

The Master in Sustainability Science- Environment and Decision Making is full time (100%) online distance program, which means that you study with the help of the Internet and instructions on the learning platform Canvas.

You can read this distance Master program regardless of where you are and as long as you have access to a working internet connection. However, reading at a distance does not mean that you can fully decide for yourself when you study. In each course that is included in the education, there are some time-bound elements where you need to participate in activities for a certain period of time

Program structure

The program comprises 120 higher education credits and leads to a Master's degree in Environmental Science. One semester of full-time studies corresponds to 30 higher education credits (credits). The full-time studies are arranged in such a way that the students sequentially read courses of 7.5 higher education credits throughout the program, apart from the master's thesis, which comprises 30 higher education credits
