The River Delta Development Master’s programme is a full-time English-taught Master’s programme. During the first half year (30 EC), you will study at HZ in Middelburg, the second half year will be spent at Van Hall Larenstein University of Applied Sciences in Velp and the third half year will be completed at the Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences.
The Master’s programme River Delta Development trains students to be facilitators of change for river deltas. Everywhere in the world, urbanization and climate change are encroaching upon these fertile, ecologically valuable regions.
The challenge is to decrease the vulnerability of river deltas while simultaneously increasing the opportunities for healthy economic and ecological development. In the Master’s programme River Delta Development, these developments are viewed as transitions: progressive, complex changes and adjustments in river delta systems that demand professionals who can intervene effectively.
These transitions require innovative, multidisciplinary, and holistic solutions. Versatile delta professionals are required, who not only have knowledge of river delta systems (coasts, seas, and rivers) and the latest developments, but also possess the necessary research and communication skills to make meaningful contributions to these transitions. The central theme of the Master’s programme River Delta Development is: The transition of deltas: from large-scale management to sustainable adaptation.
