Brief description of the degree course
Characteristics and objectives

The degree course is held in English and French. The course is also organized according to a fixed international mobility: the first semester in Padua, the II semester at KULeuven and the III semester at
Univ. Paris 1, Panthéon - Sorbonne.
The IV sem (for internship and thesis) will be held in either one of theseuniversities: at the Dom Bosco Catholica University (Campo Grande / Brazil) or at one of three African partner universities at Cairo Univ., Ouagadougo Univ., and the Univ of Johannesburg. Students can apply for internships and research for the thesis even in the 3 non-academic partner organisations: Via-Via Tourism Academy - Belgium, Alda - Italy and Sebrae - Brazil.

The 4 pillars of sustainability are the connecting threads of the teachings that are distributed in the various locations involved: socio-spatial dynamics (Padua), environmental dynamics (Leuven), and economic dynamics(Paris) from an environmental and socio-cultural perspective. Finally, the four pillars are connected transversely by governance dynamics (i.e.policies).

Graduates will be able to recognize the emergence of favourable conditions for sustainable development and, simultaneously, to identify the conditions of unsustainability. Furthermore, they will be able to draw on the sustainability of the development processes and to plan corrective practices in contexts of unsustainability. Lastly, they will also be able to promote the establishment of conditions conducive to sustainable development.

In particular, in this respect, graduates will acquire an in-depth knowledge and will have the ability to apply—in full autonomy and even in particularly problematic contexts—the different methodologies used for the development, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of programs and projects for sustainable development.

The course includes a kick-off seminar (3-4 days). This activity provides an orientation to the master through the involvement of all of the operational resources of the course. The propaedeutic efficacy of kick-off seminar (KOS) comes from creating a solid foundation for educational activities through the sharing of course content and the knowledge of the roles/tasks that are offered.

The course includes an on-site traineeship in collaboration with relevant agencies, associations, institutions, companies and NGOs, with the objective of conducting a case study that will provide the starting point for the master degree's final exam.


Occupational opportunities

Potential professional opportunities lie in the vast field of sustainable territorial development at the micro-, meso- and macro-scale/level. They concern context analysis and feasibility studies, activities in the framework of the project cycle, participation in the design and evaluation of policies and sector programs.

Workplaces: NGOs, public administrations at various levels, national and international agencies and organizations, professional associations and citizens' associations, companies.
