Doctoral Program in Environment and Society

The doctoral program is aimed at graduates from the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences who wish to research questions concerning the nature/culture/environment interface.

Environmental Studies Certificate Program

The certificate program is open to all Master's students, Diplom students, and those studying Lehramt and towards their Staatsexamen. The program provides students with the opportunity to gain an additional interdisciplinary qualification in environmental studies. 

RECOMS Innovative Training Network

The Rachel Carson Center is participating in RECOMS, Resourceful and Resilient Communities, a new Marie Sklodowska Curie (MSCA) Innovative Training Network (ITN) funded by the European Commission. It is comprised of a transdisciplinary consortium of scientists, practitioners and change agents from eleven public, private and non-profit organisations located in six European Union countries. The RCC hosts two early stage researchers in the program, Talitta Reitz and Zhanna Baimukhamedova.

ERASMUS+ Programs

There is an ERASMUS+ exchange program between the environmental studies certificate program at LMU Munich and the Faculty of Arts and Education at the University of Stavanger in Norway. LMU Munich also offers an exchange program with the Institute of Social Ecology at the Vienna Campus of Alpen-Adria-Universität (AAU) in Austria.

ENHANCE Innovative Training Network

The Rachel Carson Center is participating in a new European graduate training network, the Environmental Humanities for a Concerned Europe (ENHANCE) Innovative Training Network (ITN). Its aim is to provide young researchers with multidisciplinary doctoral training in Environmental Humanities and prepare them for a wide variety of careers. 

University of Kansas Exchange

The KU History Department and the Rachel Carson Center for Environment and Society have created an informal agreement for the exchange of doctoral students at the dissertation stage. The program makes it possible for students at one institution to go to the partner institution to do research, audit courses, participate in events (such as colloquia), and learn from scholars from other parts of the world.
