This is a Micro-Masters program on Circular Economy offered by Wageningen UR. It consists of three shorter courses: From Fossil Fuels to Biomass: A Chemistry Perspective; Circular Economy: An Interdisciplinary Approach; Economics and Policies in a Biobased Economy.

This program covers a very wide variety of topics, looking at the concept and application of Circular Economy from different angles. It offers a well-rounded, multidisciplinary perspective, using sciences and humanities together for a deeper understanding of the topic. If you are interested in Circular Economy, this would be a good choice to start.

While edX offers free access to course materials, the completion of the Micro-Masters could aid prospective students in applying for full-time on-campus graduate-level programs, be it Wageninged or other universities.
