The Environmental Humanities are an ever-more important area of research that establishes a fruitful dialogue between the natural sciences, the social sciences and all areas of the humanities.
As a result, this master’s degree helps you explore how to perceive, communicate and manage environmental transformation caused by human activities through the lens of the humanities.
In this era increasingly characterised by complex, multi-ethnic societies and climate-change-driven migration, this programme teaches you to address environmental issues from a global, intercultural and historical perspective and transforms you into a teacher, leader or cultural operators capable of imagining, narrating and raising awareness of the sustainable future we need.
The geographical location of Venice makes Ca’ Foscari a particularly ideal place for the development of the Environmental Humanities: both a historic crossroads of civilisations and a fragile city subject to the effects of global tourism and climate change, Venice invites and encourages critical reflections and the ideation of creative solutions.
