Teaching for Empowerment

The concept of the Kiel School of Sustainability is to bring “thinkers” and “problem solvers” together. Our aim is to enable students to analyse issues of sustainable development under a multidisciplinary perspective and empower them to take action in order to create sustainable solutions.

For postgraduate students the Kiel School of Sustainability offers a range of taught Masters programmes each focusing on different aspects of sustainable development. These programmes comprise two years of full time study including three taught semesters and an individual research project of 6 months duration. The School offers more than 70 modules in English language and several of the Masters programmes are taught fully in English.

For both undergraduate and postgraduate students the Kiel School of Sustainability offers the Changemaker Curriculum for Sustainable Development and Social Entrepreneurship. The curriculum teaches students of all Bachelor, Master and PhD programmes how to create own projects for sustainable development.
