Choose 1 course from RO1 in consultation and agreement with your study adviser. At the study adviser's discretion, the selected course may be exchanged for an advanced course of similar orientation.
RO2: Choose A, B or C in consultation and agreement with your study adviser.
YMC-60300 is a generic code that cannot be selected. Instead, choose 3 credit points of modular skills courses as listed in the Study Handbook under YMC-60300.
Select 1 cluster from RO3 - RO9 in consultation and agreement with your study adviser:
- If RO3 is selected, choose 2 courses from RO3A and 1 thesis from RO3B in consultation with your study adviser.
- If RO4 is selected, choose 1 course from RO4A in consultation with your study adviser.
- If RO5 is selected, choose 2 courses from RO5A and 1 thesis from RO5B in consultation with your study adviser.
- If RO6 is selected, choose 2 courses from RO6A in consultation with your study adviser.
- If RO7 is selected, choose 1 course from RO7A, 2 courses from RO7B, and 1 thesis from RO7C in consultation with your study adviser.
- If RO8 is selected, choose 1 course from RO8A in consultation with your study adviser; choose RO8B too if your study adviser deems it necessary.
- If RO9 is selected, choose 12 credit points from RO9A in consultation with your study adviser; choose RO9B too if your study adviser deems it necessary.
Choose 1 internship from RO10. You may exchange the internship for a second thesis (minor) if you have (supervised) work experience on an academic level.
Notes:
1. You may apply for the Climate-KIC certificate issued by the European Institute of Technology. This certificate is awarded if you meet specific admission requirements, complete extra-curricular study activities, including a summer school and a series of seminars, and meet specific requirements regarding your major thesis and internship.
2. There is a selective track Sustainable Development Diplomacy attached to the major Environmental Policy (RO9).
3. There is a selective research variant.
Ask your study adviser for information.
