Tailor-made and Thematic Study Profiles in Water Management and Governance MSc Programme
You can compose your own study trajectory within the Water Management and Governance Master Programme. After a foundation phase during which you are exposed to the different disciplines involved in the water management domain, you can compile a study profile from a wide range of available courses and a variety of thesis research topics to ensure that the educational programme is fully aligned with your professional needs. You will be guided in this process by professional coaches who will encourage you to reflect on your knowledge and skills, advice you on career possibilities and assist you in selecting a suitable tailor-made or thematic study profile. The coaches have extensive knowledge on the needs of the water sector in various parts of the world and your employer will be consulted in the process.
Where appropriate, you can also opt for one of the four thematic study profiles: water resources management, water services management, water conflict management and water quality management. An integration phase towards the end of the taught part of the programme will ensure that you get hands on experience with integrated approaches and multidisciplinary collaboration.
Apply for the programme in Water Management and Governance and compose your own study trajectory or enroll in one of four study profiles during the course of the programme.
