Course summary

This interdisciplinary pathway generally explores the interface between security, energy and the environment through engaging the latest critical thinking on risk management, critical infrastructure, public regulation, policy studies and the environmental sciences.

This pathway considers the impacts of living with environmental change and the diverse responses needed to foster behaviours, practices and policies which promote sustainability and resilience.

Recent collaborations between the Department of Psychology at the University of Bath and the Geography Department at Exeter University include the study of ecological citizenship and volunteering and public reactions to alternative energy generating sources (e.g. wind farms and tides). Other potential collaborations drawing on the strengths of the Department of Psychology include empirical studies of interventions to reduce energy consumption in the home, transport psychology, green investing and the evaluation of personal carbon trading schemes, risk perception and management challenges of environmental change around tree health and animal disease.
