This field of study or specialization covers the full scope of climate-related issues from a policy and education perspective.
It is the only fully online master program in this field organized by an intergovernmental (treaty-based) organization and officially used by diplomats and civil servants over 4 continents. Alumni, students and faculty include current and former ambassadors, minister-counsellors, etc.
