About

LUC The Hague offers a broad, flexible and interdisciplinary curriculum, focused on enabling each student to design their own programme of study in accordance with their own personal interests and ambitions. This Earth, Energy and Sustainability BSc major is offered at the Leiden University. 

Overview

At the start of the 20th century there were fewer than 2 billion people. Now at 7 billion, Earth’s population is on target to reach 8 billion by 2027. How has this dramatic increase in human population impacted Earth’s life support systems and natural resources? What is sustainability? How do we achieve a sustainable society? These are very big questions and very complex topics to cover.
