The Department of Environment and Sustainability offers the following Master Programs:
Environmental Management and Policy 2 years
The International Master’s Program in Environmental Management and Policy (EMP) enables graduates to inspire and drive change by developing their abilities to evaluate, design, and implement management and policy responses to complex environmental challenges. The EMP program revolves around distinguished key features: interdisciplinary learning, its international nature and practically applied studies. The EMP is focused on both environmental policy and environmental management. This is based on our collective experience that decision makers within both these spheres benefit vastly from having such a dual understanding. More and more, we find that many alumni, regardless of their profession or sector, work within both the realms of public policy and corporate management to move the environmental agenda further.
Environmental Studies and Sustainability Science 2 years
Tuition Fee: 11850 Euro
LUMES is an interdisciplinary program focusing on sustainability challenges from a local to a global level through combining both social and natural science perspectives.

The world is rapidly changing, thus offering new challenges for architecture. These challenges concern everything from densification of cities and sustainability to new technologies and how they affect the way we design and build. Lund University, located in the dynamic Copenhagen–Malmö region, is well known for its competence and knowledge, and offers superb resources for studying these matters in a broader context. The program combines best practice with advanced research, thus educating students to become highly skilled professionals who are competitive at an international level. Teaching contains both theoretical and hands-on projects aiming to find future-focused solutions to real-world issues. The program features international collaboration as well as locally active professionals. The process of working/learning consists of a mixture of workshops, critiques, tutorials with invited guests (both international and local) and longer projects that will be exhibited to a public audience.
The objectives of the Master’s program in Architecture are:
- to offer a broad education in architecture with possible specialization within two main fields (see below)
- to provide students with the knowledge and skills required to act successfully within a challenging future shaped by internationalization, change and emerging technologies
