Course summary

This MA highlights the complex relationship between environmental and developmental challenges.

Based in the School of Global Studies, you’ll study in a unique department that encourages you to learn from the Global South as much as from the Global North. You will learn to think critically and practically about the effects different theoretical assumptions and policy approaches have on our ability to manage the relationship between environment, economy, and society.

You will explore a range of critical and practitioner perspectives on environment, development, and policy, drawing from the three main subject areas in the School of Global Studies:

  • Anthropology
  • Geography
  • International Relations/International Political Economy.

Our campus is also home to an active student body, hosting frequent debates, lectures, films, and social events around global and political issues.

Careers

Our graduates go on to work in national and international development agencies within and beyond government, as well as in NGOs and community organisations.
