Course summary

Overview

Climate Change is a growing issue for environmental policy makers at international, national and sub-national levels, as well as for environmental managers and experts in public, private and non-profit making organisations.

Our Climate Change and Environmental Policy Masters degree provides you with a unique combination of training on the physical, social and policy aspects of climate change and on broader environmental policy and governance.

You will receive a solid foundation in the physical and social science of climate change and its impacts, including adaptation to, and mitigation of, climate change. You will also develop a critical understanding of the policy tools available to promote environmental protection.

This Masters course combines modules taught at the School of Earth and Environment, with optional modules from the School of Geography and the School of Politics and International Studies and Leeds University Business School.

Our teaching draws on the latest cutting-edge research and is delivered by experts and the world’s leading researchers on climate change policy to give you in-depth knowledge and guidance.

This course is ideal if you want to become an interdisciplinary environmental manager, consultant, advisor or policy maker, or if you are looking to improve your career prospects or make a career change.

Learning and teaching

You will learn through a variety of teaching methods to help you develop both generic and subject-specific skills.

This includes lectures, practical workshops, field trips (UK and overseas), computer lab sessions, research seminars and project work (individual and group work).

Practical exercises focus around real-world scenarios and case studies to produce optimal solutions including familiarisation with state-of-the-art technical approaches, software and the regulatory regimes that companies and public sector organisations operate within.

Assessment

You will be assessed through a variety of ways including both written and oral assignments, exams and poster presentations.

Career opportunities

We have a strong commitment to enhancing student employability and our school has its own dedicated Employability Officer.

This Masters is designed to equip you with both a conceptual and applied understanding of critical issues in climate change and environmental policy and governance. It is ideal if you want to continue your undergraduate studies or you are looking to increase your skill set to progress in your career development in the areas of climate change, environmental policy and sustainability, as well as pursue a research career or go on to a PhD.
