Global Environmental and Sustainability Studies

Schedule of studies

The English-language, three-year Bachelor degree Global Environmental and Sustainability Studies starts with the Leuphana Semester. In the Leuphana Semester you will receive an introduction to scientific study and method together with the first semester students of the other Bachelor programmes. Starting with the second semester you will expand the study area of your major Global Environmental and Sustainability Studies through a second subject area introduced in your minor. Your minor enables you to dive deeper into your personal interests and develop your own, individual profile. Parallel to these two subject-specific fields of study you will have classes dedicated to Complementary Studies where you are encouraged to discover and experiment with other disciplines.
