The aim of our Sustainability Management BSc programme is to prepare sustainability specialists, managers and experts who can successfully implement solutions that help to achieve business and social development goals without depletion of natural resources. You will gain the most up-to-date knowledge and practical skills within the courses related to the environment (including climate change and its consequences, natural hazards, water management problems, waste management, responsible management of environmental resources, protection of natural ecosystems and biodiversity); socio-economic issues (focused on specific models of economic development and social life, the impact of environmental changes on social interactions); management (management and leadership as mechanisms of planning and implementation of tasks).
The programme is in line with the Sustainable Development Goals adopted by the United Nations. It delivers a curriculum balanced between environmental strategies and socio-economic development , and is consistent with the priorities of the European Union policy (Green Deal, Circular Bio-economy, Digital Transformation, Jobs & Growth, Social Protection & Health). In particular, the programme focuses on such issues such as biodiversity, climate change, smart agriculture and food production, sustainable tourism and urban development.
Our graduates will be ready to forecast and identify the most pressing problems of the contemporary world, analyse them, and evaluate ecological and human risks. They will also be able to design solutions to various crisis situations in the human environment-related, among others, to climate change, natural disasters, water resource deficits, ecosystem transformation, biodiversity reduction, energy security, etc. The graduates will be prepared to work in all types of organizations, companies and institutions that aim to build more environmentally friendly practices at the local, state and global levels. They may be employed as analysts, consultants, planners, managers, directors and educators. In particular, graduates are expected to be engaged in biological, chemical, hydrological, water and wastewater , and waste laboratories; local and state government and non-governmental organisations, agencies and departments monitoring, organizing and supporting activities for sustainable development, and educational institutions at all levels.
We offer an interdisciplinary and complex approach to the study of sustainability and integrate environmental, social sciences and civil engineering into the curriculum. Academic staff involved in the programme is a multidisciplinary team of experts from various Faculties at Maria Curie-Skłodowska University (including the Faculty of Earth Sciences and Spatial Management, the Faculty of Biology and Biotechnology, the Faculty of Chemistry, the Faculty of Economics), as well as from the Lublin University of Technology and the University of Life Sciences in Lublin. Moreover, we ensure individual learning pathways – you might be able to choose between tracks offering specialization in the following areas: Ecosystem Services for Sustainable Governance, Energy and Technology for Sustainable Development, Sustainable Agriculture and Food Production, Sustainable Urban Development, Crisis and Disaster Management.
The Sustainability Management BSc programme is delivered in compliance with European teaching standards. Therefore, our graduates may choose to continue studying at the master’s degree level with us at UMCS or elsewhere in Poland or in the European Union countries.
