Common Part

There are two selective career-oriented tracks available that can be combined with your specialization:
1. Sustainable Development Diplomacy (linked to the thesis track Environmental Policy in Specialization Climate, Society and Economics);
2. Research.
Ask your study adviser for information.

RO-1: Choose either RO-1A, RO-1B, RO-1C, RO-1D or RO-1E in consultation and agreement with your study adviser.
Please note that all options have specific entry requirements.
- If RO-1B is selected, choose Academic Consultancy Training and choose 3 credits worth of Modular Skills Training courses (MOS).
- RO-1C International Environmental Policy Consultancy can only be choosen if you are selected for the Sustainable Development Diplomacy track which is linked to the thesis track Environmental Policy in Specialization B.
- RO-1E Research Master Cluster can only be taken after you have completed your thesis.

RO-2: Choose this course unless your study adviser indicates differently.
RO-3: Choose this course unless your study adviser indicates differently.
RO-4: Choose 1 or more courses if your study adviser deems it necessary.
RO-5: Select these courses for a minor in Environmental Education or Environmental Communication and Innovation as replacement for the Internship of your Thesis Track:
- choose RO-5, 1 additional course from RO-5A if your study adviser deems it necessary, and 1 thesis or internship from RO-5B as replacement for the internship of your specialization.
