Course summary

How do we achieve energy security, energy justice and environmental sustainability, across different places and people? This question we all face is the ‘energy trilemma’.

With the MSc Energy, Society and Sustainability, you can explore these challenges affecting our world today and in the future.

What will I learn?

The MSc in Energy, Society and Sustainability equips you with an understanding of how different societies can address the challenge of balancing energy with sustainability. It brings together a social, political, economic, and environmental understanding of low-carbon technologies.

You will explore the risks, costs, and benefits of making the energy transition to low-carbon energy in a globalised world.

The programme will equip you with a critical awareness of related local, regional and global debates and challenges, such as the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and role of energy in development.

You will benefit from our access to insightful case studies, as well as the organisations and communities our lecturers work closely with, from local Scottish islands to international corporations.

Career opportunities

Demand has never been higher for sound evidence on behavioural change, public engagement with energy issues and public support for community and commercial investments in low-carbon energy generation.

The MSc will enable you to translate complex social and technical issues into effective arguments, policies and innovative business opportunities.

We have links with government departments, energy-relevant NGOs, and key industry players who want to make use of the skills gained from the MSc, from community energy organisations to start-up renewable energy companies.

We are committed to helping you meet prospective employers and network with those active in the field. We also organise careers events and encourage dissertations conducted in partnership with external organisations.
