Welcome letter

Congratulations to your place at the Environmental Communication and Management Master’s Programme at SLU. We are looking forward to meeting you here in Uppsala in August.

 

The autumn semester 2020 begins with roll call and study information on campus.

Date: Monday 31 August

Time and place: On the pages for new students, you will find information when the roll call for your programme begins and which room the roll call will be in.

On these pages, you will also find all the information you need as a new student at SLU, including information about the orientation days. The orientation days are not mandatory but we recommend that you attend them. They take place at the end of August, before the semester starts, and provide essential and useful information about your stay in Sweden and your studies at SLU. 

As a student in the ECM programme, you are member of a group of people with diverse backgrounds. You come from different countries, speak different languages, and have different education and specializations. We assume you also have different experiences of environmental problems; you might have different views and ideas about how environmental and other societal problems should be managed, and what role communication play in management processes. During this programme, we will use these differences in experience and views as a resource in order to understand environmental communication, together with theory presented in literature and lectures. We will communicate and you will write a lot. You will also use, mainly social science, theories to understand and change the communication situations we will study and experience. Hence, we recommend you to practice academic writing and to read up books, articles or blog posts introducing modern social theories. Contact the Programme Director of Studies or the Coordinator of the Introduction course if you want tips on academic writing and social theory readings.

 

Once again, welcome to SLU and the Environmental Communication and Management Programme.
