Course summary

Climate change is a multifaceted issue, with relevance across a wide range of economic sectors and policy areas. The Postgraduate Diploma in Climate Change offers you the chance to take a truly interdisciplinary approach to your study in climate change, engaging with academic, professional and popular literature. It is ideal if you are interested in studying at postgraduate level for personal or professional reasons, but you don't want to commit to a full MA.

You will learn about how climate change is being tackled by governments, business and other organisations, and be able to critically evaluate scientific scenarios of future climate and associated impacts, assess the effectiveness of different policy approaches, and determine suitable business responses to the climate change challenge. You will also explore the key debates and ideas from a range of viewpoints, balancing science, policy and business practice.

The course is designed for both climate change practitioners wishing to further develop their understanding of key issues, and those hoping to move into this fast-developing sector. As it is offered through part-time, evening, face-to-face study, it is ideal if you want to combine study with your career.

The compulsory modules give a comprehensive grounding in key topics and an opportunity to reflect on practice at both individual and corporate levels. They are complemented by a wide range of option modules, which allow you to pursue your own interests.

TEACHING

Teaching may include formal lectures, seminars, and practical classes and tutorials. Formal lectures are used in most degree programmes to give an overview of a particular field of study. They aim to provide the stimulus and the starting point for deeper exploration of the subject during your own personal reading. Seminars give you the chance to explore a specific aspect of your subject in depth and to discuss and exchange ideas with fellow students. They typically require preparatory study.

CAREERS AND EMPLOYABILITY

Graduates can pursue a career in business, environmental management, local government, policy work, and in environmental groups and charities. Possible professions include nature conservation officer, environmental consultant, or geographical information systems officer.
