An Interdisciplinary Master in Environmental Studies

JEMES is strongly interdisciplinary, integrating course units delivered by academic staff from all four partner universities and leading guest scholars.

Jemes Joint European Master Environmental Studies
Based on long term excellence in teaching and research, the programme is devoted to the quality of the environment and related technologies as well as to sustainable management and conservation.

JEMES deals from the technological and managerial perspective with chemical, physical and biological changes in the environment as well as social and economic aspects and considers the behaviour of air, water and soil as they are affected by anthropogenic activities.

An international Master

JEMES is an innovative Master in Environmental Studies offered jointly by:

JEMES is an exclusive high end programme that promotes students mobility. Participants are required to study in at least two of the partner universities in order to obtain a Joint Master Degree.

Two main orientations
JEMES integrates two different scientific orientations (streams):
  • Stream 1 is more oriented towards Technology (Environmental Technology Engineering, TUHH and UA)
  • Stream 2 is more oriented towards Social Science / Management (Environmental Management Engineering, UAB and AAU).

You will be exposed to a range of demanding learning experiences. In addition to fundamental subjects, you may choose among a large number of elective options.

JEMES is truly interdisciplinary. Mobility is organised in a way that students will be exposed to each stream for at least one entire semester. Thus, those students who start at TUHH or UA (Environmental Technology Engineering) will spend their second semester at UAB or AAU, and those starting at UAB and AAU (Environmental Management Engineering) move for their second semester to TUHH or UA. During the second semester they have to take a binding decision whether to continue in Stream 1 (Environmental Technology Engineering) or in Stream 2 (Environmental Management Engineering) for semester 3 and 4 and at which of the two possible locations.

Training will provide students with a solid and broad scientific background in the field and important abilities and qualifications such as problem solving, teamwork, management of complex environmental processes, analytical competency, not to mention high intercultural awareness and excellent communication skills, fluency in English and knowledge of other European languages, a network of valuable contacts.

Students will obtain a Master of Science degree (120 ECTS) in Environmental Studies jointly awarded by all universities. The joint Degrees will be recognised in all partner countries.
