Climate Change Science and Policy

Concern about global environmental change has never been greater. The University of Bristol's MSc in Climate Change Science and Policy trains highly skilled graduates for professional employment in the public and private sectors, academia, consultancies and non-governmental organisations. The programme is provided by the School of Geographical Sciences, ranked top in the country in terms of world-class research (REF 2014) and one of only two UK geography departments in the top category in every national research assessment. You will join our research groups in analysing four key areas of the science: + climate change science and its links to policy and policy-makers; + modelling of the Earth system, from simple box models to complex climate models; + remote sensing of the environment and GIS; + understanding past climate change and making predictions of future change. This innovative programme also allows you to develop a range of professional skills - including presentation, project work, teamwork and communication - which will be invaluable in your future career. The programme is closely linked to the renowned Cabot Institute, which brings together all of the University's research into the changing global environment across the sciences, social sciences and engineering.
