Relevant study programmes for sustainability
The University of Luxembourg offers study programmes across a wide range of disciplines that equip students in different ways to address diverse sustainability challenges.
Addressing a particular sustainability challenge is one of the main stated objectives in the following programmes.
Faculty of Humanities, Education and Social Sciences (FHSE)
Certificate in Sustainable Development and Social Innovation
The Certificate aims to provide a better understanding of the complex challenges that societies, organisations and individuals face as we approach the limits of the biophysical carrying capacity of our planet.
Faculty of Science, Technology and Medicine (FSTM)
Faculty of Law, Economics and Finance (FDEF)
Most BA and MA programmes relating to economics and management offer introductory lectures on sustainable development and the economy, and optional courses on ecological economics.
There are plans to start transforming existing teaching programmes at the bachelor and master levels to increase students’ sustainability awareness and to foster students’ knowledge, skills and competencies in relation to sustainability. The longer-term plan is to weave sustainable finance into all course units to problematize sustainability in all subject areas (finance, economics, law, accounting, auditing, and entrepreneurship).
