Applied Environmental Management

The minor in Applied Environmental Management provides students with the important knowledge of how environmental challenges are addressed in practice and which ethical implications this includes. Students acquire basic knowledge in all fields of environmental sciences and a special focus on the environmental humanities and ethics. They gain practical experiences in an internship taking place in an enterprise active in the areas of the environment and sustainability. Within their internship and the elective program across the faculties, students can lay a focus in their studies according to their own interests.

The program is structured as follows:

  • 12 ECTS: Basic courses in environmental sciences (Environmental Ethics, Ecology, Resources and Environmental Law & Economics)
  • 12 ECTS: Compulsory elective program in Environmental Humanities
  • 2 ECTS: 3 excursions as part of the seminar “Focal Points of Sustainable Development”
  • 18 ECTS: Electives program (interfaculty; courses at UniFR and UniBern)
  • 16 ECTS Internship

The program can be started in September or February. It is taught in German and French. 

More information regarding the intership can be found here.
