Charm-EU “Global Challenges for Sustainability”

Utrecht University and the Green Media Studies initiative in particular are proud to be part of the new international CHARM-EU Master’s program in Global Challenges for Sustainability together with the University of Barcelona, Trinity College Dublin, Eötvös Loránd University and the University of Montpellier. The new program will employ innovative pedagogical approaches and mechanisms to engage staff and students of diverse backgrounds and disciplines to facilitate, foster and enhance the links between education, research and innovation. Furthermore, active engagement with CHARM-EU’s extended network of academic experts and extra-academic actors increases the potential development and employability of prospective graduates.

The CHARM-EU master’s offers a deeply intercultural experience: students will be attending lectures in one of the five aforementioned CHARM-EU partner universities, which jointly accredit and award the degree, and connect to the other campuses online over the 18-month duration of the Master’s. Mobility is an integrated part of the program so the course will combine a variety of mobility options: switching campuses from one phase to the other, short mobilities within one phase, and virtual mobility.

More information about the “Social Innovation” module, coordinated by Dr. Jasper van Vught (UU) and bringing together several Green Media Studies researchers, will be published in the ‘Courses‘ section on this website soon.
