The SuCo2 group is supervising Master theses on the interface of sustainable consumption and sustainability communication. The following list shows all Master projects that have been completed with the involvement of SuCo2 team members.

If you are interested in writing your Master thesis with SuCo2, please get in touch with a SuCo2 member that most closely connects to your topic. Please make sure with the administration that the SuCo2 member has been approved as a Master thesis supervisor before you contact them.
