Course summary

How is climate change linked to policy and policy makers? How does climate change impact upon the world’s economies? There is a rapidly growing need to understand the nature and consequences of the climate crisis, and to develop evidence-led strategies to respond. Our MA in Environmental Futures with Climate Change will provide you with rigorous training to better understand the causes and impact of climate change and to formulate strategies and solutions. The programme will provide you with knowledge of how climate change science is linked to policy and policy makers and will develop a foundation to understand prevention of the climate crisis and mitigation/adaptation that is grounded in the social, natural and environmental sciences. You will learn the scientific evidence that is needed for policymakers and societies to respond to these global challenges impacting the natural capital and the world’s economies. You will also learn and apply the appropriate research methods to study the environment and climate change and will be fully prepared and supported to conduct a dissertation project on a relevant topic. You will also be prepared to assess both quantitative and qualitative measurements and analyses and build your own datasets in the field of environmental policy. You will also demonstrate proficiency in critical thinking, and written and oral communication, while understanding the context of environmental issues and the links between human and natural systems. The programme provides a strong foundation for PhD research, but is also ideal for employment in a wide range of public and private industries, including government agencies, consultancies and NGOs/charities. If you like the sound of our MA Environmental Futures with Climate Change course but are particularly interested in quantitative analysis, complex data structures and multivariate hypothesis testing, the MSc version of this course may be for you. The world needs Essex graduates now more than ever, welcome home.
