Holistic science is a different way of looking at the issues we face; it combines a rigorous investigation of conventional scientific thought with cutting-edge experiential, intuitive and group learning processes to bring about a more participatory understanding of the natural world and our role within it; this postgraduate programme in holistic science completely re-evaluates our scientific understanding of nature, the ecological crisis we face and our role in widespread ecological, economic, sustainable and social change.
