Within the ENP group, our vision is to provide high quality education in the sociology and political science of environmental transformations. We aim to educate both social and natural science students, and in doing so represent the social sciences of the environment across a diversity of BSc and MSc programmes at Wageningen University.
The education programme of ENP is based on representation of our research and visibility for a wide range of students within the educational programme of Wageningen University.
The ENP Group offers courses in Environmental Policy and the Social Sciences to the Bachelors and Masters curricula of Environmental Sciences:
- Aquaculture and Marine Resource Management
- Climate Studies
- Environmental Science
- International Development Studies
- Management, Economics and Consumer Studies
- Tourism, Society & Environment

The Environmental Policy Group is involved in teaching several courses. Additionally you can do an internship or thesis at our department.

ENP PhD program
Over the past 5 years, the number of PhD projects has increased considerably, with researchers coming from all parts of the world. Although it is not an official requirement, many PhD researchers prior to the PhD project took part in the MSc program 'Environmental Science and Management' of Wageningen University. All PhD researchers and projects contribute directly to the research program of the ENP group and are included in the research schools SENSE or WASS. All PhD researchers have an officially approved training and supervision program. Research proposals for PhD projects are always presented to and discussed among the other members of the ENP group during so called Research Colloquia.
Those who want to start a PhD at the Environmental Policy group at Wageningen University can find general information on the PhD application procedure on the PhD website of Wageningen University.
For more information on the ENP PhD program, please see research.
Specializing in environmental policy at Wageningen University provides the basis for students to work as researchers, advisors, civil servants and policy makers and development organisations. Since 2000 over 350 students have written a thesis under ENP supervision.
