Course summary

Programme overview

More of the world's extreme poor now live in middle-income than in low-income countries, and processes such as climate change, transnational migration and globalisation demand a global consideration of the state of the planet. Development is now being seen as a global process and activity, rather than something reserved for a subset of countries such as the Third Worldor Global South. Contemporary global challenges demand?the?linking?of?environmental issues to conventional foci of development (like health, urbanisation, poverty, food security and migration). They also demand an understanding of how the world's resources (water, energy, land, minerals, demography, etc.) are allocated and managed, and how contestations over these distributions play out.

This programme is aimed at talented graduates seeking to develop or enhance their expertise in the fields of development and environment. You will develop the capacity to critically analyse the large-scale drivers of environmental consumption and stewardship, and how these interlink with and produce developmental outcomes.

You will gain a perspective that is at once global?and?interdisciplinary?while also paying attention to?locality (place) and people’s agency in forging a just and sustainable future.

This programme is unique in the UK context; no other UK university offers a programme?explicitly linking global development with environmental topics. It builds upon Bristol’s existing research strengths in these fields, with links to the University's Cabot Institute, Perivoli?Africa Research Centre, Elizabeth Blackwell Institute, Jean Golding Institute, and Bristol Poverty Institute.

Careers

Students completing this programme will be able to go on to work in government, the non-profit sector, multilateral organisations and private companies including development and environmental consultancies. The intensive research training will also prepare you for further postgraduate study.
