Course summary

Overview

Sustainable economic development and environmental management are two key challenges facing the Global South. Our Environment and Development with Integrated Fieldwork MSc will provide you with high-quality interdisciplinary training to help you understand the many perspectives of different actors operating in the Global South.

This Masters is led by the Sustainability Research Institute and brings together a wide range of academic expertise from the School of Earth and Environment, the School of Politics and International Studies, and from the practitioner community.

A key part of your learning will be based around an international field course to Tanzania, where you will gain first-hand practical experience and apply classroom-based learning in a developing country context.

You will investigate the debates and challenges associated with international development that is environmentally, socially and economically sustainable and contribute towards achieving solutions that support this topical, fast-growing field.

You will gain the knowledge, skills and practical experience, that national and international employers require to reconcile distinct objectives, such as the need for sustainable economic development and environmental conservation.

The course is ideal if you would like to develop or continue a career in environment and/or development practice, policy, training or research, and/or if you are thinking of working in an international capacity. The Masters will prepare you for work in both the public and private sectors, and within local, national and international institutions. Alternatively, you could pursue a research career or go on to a PhD.
