Building on the knowledge and experience students already possess, emphasis is placed on understanding present societal development patterns and the environmental problems they create, as well as approaches for formulating strategies for future sustainable pathways. LUMES does not concentrate on training practitioners; the foundation of the programme is rather an interdisciplinary and holistic perspective for comprehending the interactions between social, economic, and environmental systems across a variety of spatial and temporal scales.

Unique programme qualitiesThe LUMES programme is set in a unique interdisciplinary and international educational milieu, creating a setting that challenges students to broaden personal outlooks and sharpen critical thinking skills. Courses are taught in English by individuals from both the human and natural sciences with the aims of creating graduates that are able to grasp, analyse and formulate governance strategies for complex sustainability challenges. In addition, interpersonal and academic skills are developed through strong emphases on group work, presentations and academic writing.

Since LUMES started in 1997 over 600 applicants from roughly 100 countries have become LUMES students with a graduation rate exceeding 90 per cent.

Career prospectsIndustries, governments, academics, and communities are recognising the significance of addressing complex social, environmental, and economic problems holistically. As such, the interdisciplinary training, gained through the programme, opens employment opportunities for a wide array of career paths in various private sector, governmental and non-governmental, and academic settings.
