The official master's degree in Interdisciplinary Studies in Environmental, Economic and Social Sustainability takes place at the Institute for Environmental Science and Technology (ICTA), an interdisciplinary and international research centre which works with several UAB departments. The master's degree offers fours different specialisations:

  • Global Change
  • Ecological Economics
  • Urban and Industrial Ecology
  • Environmental Technology
Of the 60 credits, 30 belong to compulsory core subjects and the rest form part of each specialisation. This master's degree has been offered since the 1997/98 academic year. The master's degree offers a mixed approach. On the one hand, it includes advanced course components for graduates of Environmental Sciences. On the other, it meets the needs of other graduates interested in incorporating environmental knowledge and skills into their academic training, based on fields such as Ecological Economics and Environmental Management, Analysis of the Natural Environment, Environmental Technology, Industrial Ecology or Global Change, all of which are considered specialisations in this master's degree.
