The programme consists of the advanced study of law and policy in relation to the environment, climate change, and natural resources. Students can choose between two majors: 1) Natural Resources Governance, and 2) Environmental and Climate Change Law. The Master’s Degree Programme benefits from the research and education networks of the Institute for Natural Resources, Environment and Society (LYY), which has made UEF one of Finland’s leading places for social-scientific environmental research. The programme also benefits from the UEF Centre for Climate, Energy and Environmental Law (CCEEL), which hosts regular events, including the annual UEF-UNEP Course on Multilateral Environmental Agreements.

Career or after graduation opportunities

The academic skills provided by the program qualify graduates for a variety of expert level positions in the field of environment, natural resource management, and climate change governance. Graduates may expect, for example, to become consultants or environmental leaders within the business sector, officers for national or European Union level environmental and natural resource administration, or to secure positions in the field of international environmental diplomacy and law making in the governmental or non-governmental sectors.
