In order to successfully obtain a Masters qualification, you will need to obtain a number of credits by passing individual modules. Most taught Masters will have a number of core modules which you must take and pass in order to obtain the qualification. The assessment of research Masters is almost always entirely by a single dissertation module or project.
Those interested in pursuing an advanced degree in sustainability will learn about relevant topics, including the science and politics of climate change, development, poverty, and the social responsibility of larger corporations. Most programs are at least two years in length.

The Master's programme in Circular Economy is offered by Lappeenranta University of Technology (LUT) on the Lahti Campus.
The existing economic system is based on the take-make-and-dispose approach powered mostly by fossil fuels. The assumption is that increasing economic growth produces so much surplus that arising adverse environmental impacts could be dealt with.
However, the system keeps growing only if there are enough resources for transformation, sinks for waste, credit for investments and economic growth.
The circular economy offers an alternative. It aims to keep products, components and materials at their highest utility and value. It aims to decouple economic growth from the consumption of finite resources by closing the loop of product life cycles. The system in which materials are transformed into useful goods and services endlessly is powered by renewable energy systems.... [-]
The MBA program Building Sustainability – Management Methods for Energy Efficiency will teach students skills, methods and concepts to consider different approaches, to understand them and to align them for reaching sustainable solutions. [+]
The concept of the German “Energiewende” – literally, energy transition – has gained international attention. It includes a variety of measures that aim at making Europe’s largest economy free of fossil fuels and nuclear energy. In order to attain this, all areas of energy production and consumption will have to go through a transition process. Besides mobility and industry, buildings are therefore one of the key factors for a successful Energiewende.
Most of all, this implies re-directing from a mainly fossil-fueled energy supply towards renewable energies and a much more energy-efficient use of energy in buildings and urban areas. This is one of the largest and most urgent challenges of current urban development and other social disciplines.... [-]
