Course summary

The world is facing the prospect of a climate emergency, with decision-makers grappling with how to understand and respond to the pressures on our environment and society. Sustainable Development from the local to the global is essential if society is to tackle the challenges faced. The necessary changes will impact on every facet of society, culture and the economy, this is a critical moment to study sustainability. Students on this course will learn the facts about climate change, explore the UN Sustainable Development Goals, and consider potential and emerging solutions such as the Green New Deals, the concept of ‘degrowth’ and the transition to wellbeing economies, leaving our graduates ideally placed to influence or indeed become one of these decision-makers. This degree also focuses on how communities can shape this more sustainable form of development, particularly rural communities. To develop a critical understanding of the three pillars of sustainability (social, environmental, economic), students study modules drawn from a range of humanities and social science disciplines; geography, economics, politics, sociology, environmental studies, as well as developing practical skills in research and working with communities. Delivered entirely online via a distance / blended learning approach and available to study from anywhere in the world, students will benefit from collaborative discussions and activities with colleagues from a range of diverse backgrounds and experiences, facilitated and supported by tutors with many years of experience in delivering online and distance education.
