Climate Change and Sustainability MSc

Our MSc in Climate Change and Sustainability has been developed around two important principles:

the latest academic research from this field, which is used to give you all the necessary knowledge to work on sustainability issues; and
the skills requirements of employers in the environmental sector, so that you can be sure of your employability.

Whether you want to work in the public, private, charitable or academic sector, our course has the flexibility to give you the focused knowledge and skills that are needed to start, or re-energise, your career.

The programme is based around five compulsory modules that provide the essential background to climate change and sustainability. Students then chose three optional modules to focus their studies on their particular area of interest e.g. energy, policy and law, environmental management, modelling and data analysis or environmental science. Indeed, our alumni have gone on to work in all these areas.

The programme can be taken Full- or Part-time (from two-days or one-day contact time per week, respectively, depending on the optional modules chosen) and has a start date in September or January.

This MSc is accredited by the Institution of Environmental Sciences (IES) and the Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management (CIWEM). The Environmental Science teaching team has achieved the NUS Green Impact Bronze accreditation. We have excellent links with many employers and regularly have guest lectures from, or site visits to, these employers.
