Course summary


Address the challenges of global environmental climate change and economic development with our MSc Climate Change and Development master’s degree. Climate change has far-reaching economic and social implications. Through this programme, you will examine the social-scientific drivers and consequences of climate change – and its associated policy debates – by integrating the natural and social science of climate change, and applying cutting-edge, transdisciplinary tools to the subject.


You’ll learn from academics who are conducting world-class research within global development as well as applied economics and marketing. Current research, policy and practise examples are used throughout the course and many modules include external seminar speakers. There is also a series of department and research division talks and events. You will choose from a diverse range of modules that aim to give you the knowledge and skills you need to have an impact and be part of global change, and you can choose to undertake an optional placement during the summer term, as well.


Your MSc Climate Change and Development degree will prepare you for opportunities in a wide variety of environmental and developmental settings. These include aid agencies, NGOs, and relevant government departments – especially those focused on energy policy and climate change issues. A wide variety of visiting speakers and field trips means you’ll have many opportunities for networking, while competitive internships, placements, and research dissertations provide opportunities to showcase your skills, undertake field research, or link with organisations in the development sector.
