Course summary

The development of a green economy, or an economy that is environmentally sustainable, has become a political and socio-economic imperative. It is highly inter-disciplinary, drawing from ecology, geography, social science, psychology and technology – and, in keeping with the ethos of the course, is studied by distance learning.

Key drivers include the need to reduce carbon emissions to minimise the risk of climate change, overexploitation of resources and widespread environmental degradation, which is eroding the natural capital on which human wellbeing depends. The transition to a green economy represents a substantial challenge to society, particularly in the current era of rapid environmental and socio-economic change.

This green economy course seeks to provide the scientific understanding on which the transition to a green economy can be based, including the principles of environmental sustainability and the societal responses required to implement these in practice.

This course is accredited by IEMA. This means as a student on Green Economy you will simultaneously receive free student membership at IEMA. Once you graduate you will also become a GradIEMA professional membership.

Careers

Upon completion of this course you will enjoy a wide range of career opportunities, as an increasing number of organisations are taking an active interest in the green economy. Not only will this course equip you with subject expertise, but you will have a practical understanding of how to apply that knowledge to make a difference to businesses. This will give you extra marketability in the professional arena, providing you with a route into a successful and rewarding career.
