The question is no longer if our climate will change, but how will it change and how will we adapt to these changes?

Adaption and mitigation to global warming, the greenhouse effect and climate change all form the basis of the Master Climate Studies programme in Wageningen. Students will gain a broad overview of climate change during this two-year programme. As changes and challenges crystallise, the demand for scientists able to understand and investigate them will rise. This master programme is specifically targeted at students who wish to focus on the scientific insights into climate change and on the social and economic implications of climate change in the broadest sense.
