Academic Master's Cluster
In the AMC course you apply knowledge and skills acquired in previous courses and broaden these by executing a real-life, interdisciplinary consultancy assignment with a group of fellow students from different disciplines. The European Workshop, an AMC-type of course, is specifically designed for students from the MSc Environmental Sciences. More information on this course, in which students visit an European country for two weeks, can be found in paper The European Workshop (.pdf).
The internship consists of project work in an institution outside of Wageningen University & Research where you can apply learned skills and concepts to a professional setting. Depending on your interests, you work (at least) four months at an (inter)national NGO, research institute, consultancy firm, (start-up) company, etc. By selecting a specific internship, you can influence your future career towards a certain direction.
But there are also extra possibilities during your MSc Environmental Sciences to prepare and steer your career into a certain direction: by taking specific minors and tracks offered by Wageningen University & Research or programmes offered by other institutions.
Below a short overview regarding these extra possibilities is given. They are divided into four directions:
- education & communication,
- international relations,
- entrepreneurship and
Some of these options can be part of your MSc programme, some other options have to be followed partly next to your MSc programme. Note that you have to apply for most of these programmes and tracks, because only a limited number of students can be admitted. The selection procedure is usually only once a year.
