Course summary

Sustainable development refers to the challenges of reducing global inequalities and improving wellbeing. It is also about reducing threats to the Earth's systems from industrialised production and consumption.Effective environmental care, in relation to climate stability, biodiversity and renewal of natural resources, requires you to examine:* how societies organise social, economic and political activity* how they relate to their surroundings* how they ensure the renewal of natural resources for future generations**How we address global issues**Our programme addresses these global issues primarily through multidisciplinary social science teaching, focusing on: * the social consequences of current ways of living* patterns of development* opportunities for change**Programme structure**Students will enrol on core courses in Sustainable Development alongside core courses in a chosen disciplinary subject. Alongside this, you will have access to a wide range of optional courses to complement and broaden your learning. There are options for students wishing to pursue scientific perspectives on sustainable development, but these are not compulsory.
