Analyse and think critically about climate change

The Master’s in Climate Change (MCC) is a two-year programme, featuring specialised newly developed courses across a range of climate change topics, supplemented by key courses already offered through PAU and PAUWES. The initial (semester 1) focus of the MCC is on the intersection between climate change – both mitigation and adaptation and development. Thereafter (semesters 2 and 3), students move into one of two tracks: a Policy track and a Technical track.

The Technical Track of the programme provides advanced training in the technical, scientific dimensions of climate change. It will provide students with knowledge and skills in specific climate-related sectors and fields: interpretation of climate data and science, application of ICTS, as well as supporting skillsets for communication, knowledge management and visualisation of complex datasets, scenarios, and models.

MCC Student profile

The technical track of the Master’s in Climate Change is open to candidates with a disciplinary background in any science field with proven course syllabi related to Climate Change. Candidates should have a license degree or equivalent, or a master’s degree from a renowned institution, and they will be selected by an international selection committee.

MCC Overview

Courses have been designed to complement and build on one another over the two-year period, with four semesters of 30 credits each. The programme thus totals 120 credits. The programme includes mandatory PAU courses as well as already operational PAUWES courses, in addition to the newly developed climate change focused courses.
