Examine the challenges of promoting healthy environments in the developing world with our MSc Environment and Development master’s degree. You will explore the interrelations between environment and development at global, regional, national and local levels. You will also learn how to critically examine how these interdisciplinary challenges are constructed, interpreted and addressed by academics, international agencies, government-level policymakers, the private sector, non-government development actors, civil society, and people around the world.

Your MSc Environment and Development degree will prepare you for a career in development planning and environmental policy in international agencies, national and local government, non-governmental organisations, academia, policy think-tanks, and journalism. 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.
