Online PhD in Climate Change and Sustainability

 

Because it is offered, and uniquely so, by an intergovernmental organization with a specialized mandate in sustainable development, the EUCLID online PhD in Climate Change and Sustainability takes up the challenge of offering a comprehensive doctoral program at the junction of three specialized fields of knowledge and application: (1) climate studies (2) sustainability studies, and (3) diplomacy and global governance.

This specialized doctorate (code DCCS) is related to EUCLID’s MBA/SD which is ranked in the Top 10 for a good reason: it is offered by an international intergovernmental organization with a university mandate and specialized expertise in sustainable development.

Historically, EUCLID grew out of the cooperation between universities and the International Organization for Sustainable Development (IOSD) which was the original SD international organization and which is now a EUCLID affiliated institute.

Academic Presentation

This unique PhD focuses on policy and diplomatic practice and the actual application of theoretical knowledge, rather than the advancement of academic knowledge for its own sake.

EUCLID's programs are used by professional diplomats working for EUCLID Participating States and can be considered an excellent route to pursue a career within governmental bodies, NGOs and international organizations.

Thanks to its low tuition and institutional relationships, it is of special interest to European and African students.
