Course summary

**About This Course**What is the evidence for climate change? How does pollution affect human health and wellbeing? How are international environmental treaties formed? How can we reduce our energy consumption in the western world? What happens inside an erupting volcano? How do we treat these issues differently here and in other countries? If these are the sorts of questions that fascinate you, and if you want to study them to a high level with a view to possibly going on to a PhD, this advanced four-year integrated Master’s degree is for you. You will also have the chance to broaden your studies by spending a year studying at one of our partner institutions in Europe, US, Canada, Australia or New Zealand.The environment supports all aspects of our daily life but is also the source of some of the most complex and wide-ranging challenges facing human society today. The need for people who can help us respond to these challenges, whether at a global or local scale, has never been greater. This degree will help you become one of those essential people. You will explore how the components of the natural environment function and how they are affected by, and affect, our society, politics and culture.**Overview**This four-year course will see you cultivate a wide range of skills and knowledge, whilst discovering first-hand how you can make a difference to our world.
