Aim of the course and learning outcomes:
The main objective of the course is to give students of the master's degree program an insight into the socio-cultural aspects of the management of natural resources in developing countries and thus to complement the graduate profile with the new perspective. Students will gain practical skills for analysis of community relations and ethnological research methods. These competencies are then usable for practical internships in developing countries, working in development organizations, the nonprofit sector and public administration.
