Course summary

The MSc aims to give you a broad appreciation of all aspects of the management of people and institutions in relation to environmental change; you will become analytical in your approach, and a competent and aware decision maker. This course has three overarching aims to examine the nature, causes and impacts of major types of environmental change. How do these changes operate and interact on global, regional and local scales? How do they relate to critical social and ecological systems; examine the economic, legal, cultural, and ethical underpinnings of environmental responsibility and systemic solutions, including mitigation, adaptation, remediation, enhanced resource stewardship and other sustainable responses to environmental change at different scales and within different organisational contexts; empower environmental leaders to address the world’s most pressing environmental problems through an understanding of and training in the key analytical and practical skills, and in a broad appreciation of earth systems and societies in relation to environmental change. The core modules are assessed by written examination. You will also study two electives which are each assessed through a 4,000-word essay. You will also write an individual dissertation of 15,000 words. ECM alumni are pursuing careers with a wide range of organisations. Examples include government departments (eg Japan's Ministry of the Environment, Ontario Ministry of Finance), non-governmental organisations (eg the Carbon Trust, World Wildlife Fund), business organisations (eg McKinsey and Company, Ericsson Enterprise) and international agencies (World Food Programme, United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change). Some students use the course as a starting point for pursuing PhD (DPhil) research.
