Anthropocene: Ecologies, Tensions, Futures

Application Procedure

Please have the following supporting documents ready (in PDF) to upload to the online application form:

  • A scan of your passport
  • A copy of your transcripts/list of courses taken and grades achieved
  • An up-to-date copy of your CV/Resume
  • A letter of motivation of approximately 400-500 words stating your interest in studying the Anthropocene. As this is a topic that can be approached from a variety of perspectives, please zoom in on a specific example that makes the Anthropocene - the Human Age - apparent. What is troubling about this example, and what implications does it have for the future of (human) life on Earth?  Note: this is the most important part of your application.
  • Pay the non-refundable €25 application fee by credit card. 
  • Note: You will be asked about housing in the online application. Please select "no" as housing is not available for online courses.
