Course summary

Are you ready to explore some of the world's most pressing challenges?

Understand the link between the environment and development agendas, and global inequalities - for today and the future.

The MSc Environment and Development enables you to critically evaluate the multiple dimensions of the inter-relationship between development and the environment, with an abiding concern for social and environmental justice.

What will I learn?

The MSc has relevance in both the 'Global South' and 'Global North', drawing attention to relationships of inequality and marginalisation as they occur for particular environments and sections of society around the world.

It will provide you with a unique critical perspective, as it draws on expertise from across the University, especially from development geography, social and political sciences, and environmental studies.

Career opportunities

As a graduate of the MSc Environment and Development, you can seek roles in a variety of sectors, including: international and national development agencies; state agencies; think tanks; non-government organisations (NGOs) and civil society; environmental and development consultancies; the private secto.

Recent graduates have, for example, progressed to doctoral studies focusing on marine governance in south-east Asia and on conservation practice in east Africa.

Through this MSc, you will meet a range of environment and development practitioners who offer their perspectives on taught courses, through dedicated postgraduate career activities, and potentially through collaborations during your own dissertation research.
