University of Bristol
The interdisciplinary pathway in sustainable futures seeks to produce a new generation of researchers who can address the pressing social issues of sustainability in the face of a growing global population. Sustainability research asks how human wellbeing can be maintained and enhanced in the long term, given rising populations, limited natural resources and a fragile environment. The field, with its clear applied focus and strong strategic future-directed policy implications, has social sciences at its heart. It also requires a broad interdisciplinary approach and an understanding of economics, law, the politics and psychology of sustainability, and the geography and demographics of those affected. We therefore deliberately expose students to a broad range of material to help them appreciate and understand interconnected perspectives and to provide them with skills to work effectively across disciplines. We welcome students from a wide range of disciplinary backgrounds. Students will normally be registered in the school of their first supervisor. This may not be the school that processes your application.
A high Honours degree from a relevant discipline, and a Master's qualification (or equivalent) with appropriate research training.
The Faculty of Social Sciences and Law has an allocation of 1+3 (MRes and PhD) and +3 (PhD) ESRC scholarships. Applicants may also be interested in applying for funding from the University of Bristol scholarship fund or alumni PhD scholarship fund. Please visit the school's fees and funding web pages for further information. (http://www.bristol.ac.uk/law/study/postgrad/research/funding/)
