Course summary

Our MA Climate Change Politics and Policy degree addresses the urgent societal challenge of climate change, with a broad, international, problem-focused perspective that will suit students from a wide range of backgrounds.

Climate change is the most critical and urgent issue facing humanity in the 21st century. How to keep populations and infrastructure safe from extreme weather events; how to coordinate international diplomatic efforts to mitigate ecological disaster; how to enhance or simply maintain human health and living standards; how to link activities from public and commercial sectors, and from diverse academic disciplines, to address common challenges in the resilience and sustainability of global living systems; these are challenges that define the 21st century and will define the legacy of the individuals and institutions of today.

Modules that form part of this programme tackle issues such as international politics and globalization, sustainability and development, crisis governance, and putting climate science into practice. Students will graduate prepared to become agents of change: who can embed sustainable, critically-informed practices into their careers. Their training will enable public and private sector organisations to survive and thrive because they have a command of science, politics and policy.

Who should study this programme?

Our MA Climate Change Politics and Policy degree is suitable for students from a wide range of social-science backgrounds with an interest in sustainability and climate-change issues, with a view to further research or employment.
