Master´s program in Complex Systems Thinking for Sustainability

In the interdisciplinary Master´s program in Complex systems thinking for sustainability, students will learn ways of thinking and methods to meet the complex challenges of transforming our world. The program covers both quantitative and qualitative methods for understanding systems and their transformations. Students can choose between deepening their knowledge in systems thinking connected to epistemologies and onthologies of Natural or of the Social Sciences and the Humanities. The training covers ways of working across disciplines to understand coupled systems, and how they may be hierarchically or non-hierarchically connected. Students will also learn how to work on sustainability issues in collaborative research with societal actors, and get an opportunity to practice this in a design project as a preparation for your Master´s thesis work.

The document takes into account elements such as a preliminary needs analysis for a specific syllabus, the identification of the necessary teaching resources, tha challanges to be solved.
