Course summary


The need to address the climate emergency is now clear and pressing. A key part of our response is ensuring people have the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to build a green, low emission and climate-resilient future. As our economies transform to meet this challenge there is an increasing need for passionate graduates who can answer the demands of a changing job market. Climate change experts are required to help lead within business, government and the public sector, non-governmental organisations and research.

This exciting new course will immerse you in the interactions between climate, ecosystems and landscapes. You'll evaluate the human impacts on biophysical systems, on components of the climate system and the reciprocal impacts on human activity. You’ll learn about the effectiveness of different climate and energy policies, the performance of policy interventions and adaptation strategies, all within the context of debates about environmental governance and environmental justice. Climate change isn’t just a dimension to this course – it is the course.

How you’re taught

You will be taught through a variety of methods including group seminars, lectures, practical sessions and fieldwork. You'll also get the chance to take part in residential and non-residential field trips throughout the course.

Your future career

The course will equip you to work in a rapidly developing and fast-moving sector. Climate change adaptation is a challenge for the whole economy, and you’ll be able to pursue a career within:

  • adaptation advisory and analytics services
  • sustainable energy use and generation
  • insurance and reinsurance
  • environmental law
  • local and national government
  • national and international NGOs
  • sustainable transport and logistics
  • food security and agriculture
  • environmental consultancy.

You could also progress on to postgraduate study.

Placement opportunities

You can choose to take an optional placement year in industry at the end of your second year of study. This work experience will enable you to develop your skills and put your knowledge into practice in a working environment. This experience is highly valued by future employers.

Potential placement opportunities exist in organisations such as:

  • Environment Agency
  • Department for Environment Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA)
  • Severn Trent Water.
