MERGED admission

The world faces unprecedented problems–natural resources are disappearing, global value chains supply unsustainable products, standard agricultural production systems are outdated, millions live in poverty, and the climate is changing for the worse. Do you want to contribute to solving these problems? Are you looking for a master’s programme combining theories with fieldwork?

Then the MSc programme in Global Environment and Development (MERGED) is your answer! This elite two-year European Mundus Joint Master Degree programme will enable you to handle today’s global challenges concerning the sustainable use of natural resources and developing new agricultural production systems. MERGED is a joint programme developed and implemented by universities in Denmark, Italy, and Poland.

The programme provides MERGED students with coordinated and direct access to high-quality teaching in Europe. And you can use the international research networks of the teaching staff to find topics and supervisors – when you decide on your thesis topic. The first year, all MERGED students are at the University of Copenhagen in Denmark. Besides the many field trips in individual modules, there is a joint spring school where you carry out interdisciplinary fieldwork using the knowledge and tools acquired in the classrooms.
