Course summary

The MPhil in Environmental Economics programme offers the chance to undertake a substantial piece of research which makes an original contribution to the field of environmental economics and is worthy of publication. Students are first registered on the MPhil, and will need to meet certain requirements to be upgraded to PhD student status. The programme culminates with an examination/viva in which your work is scrutinised by two experts in the area of research in which you have specialised.

Over the last two decades, the tools of economic analysis have become indispensable in analysing environmental problems and providing the basis for developing sustainable policy solutions. With rising employment opportunities in this field, student demand has also grown for doctoral courses offering rigorous, state-of-the-art training in environmental, natural resource and climate change economics. The MPhil/PhD Programme in Environmental Economics responds to this increased demand and builds on growing research at LSE in environmental, resource and climate change economics, and other related subjects. In particular, the Department of Geography and Environment currently has the largest group of full-time academic environmental economists in any UK university, and one of the largest internationally. Importantly, the Department enjoys close links with the Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment and the ESRC Centre for Climate Change Economics and Policy.

You register for the MPhil in the first instance. An assessment of your work, which usually occurs between 12 and 18 months from your start date, will allow us to appraise your aptitude for original research at doctoral level. If you have progressed satisfactorily you will be retroactively upgraded to full PhD status. The total duration of study is a maximum of four years full-time.
