University of Bristol
This programme is one of five South West Doctoral Training Partnership interdisciplinary pathways that are delivered in partnership with the University of Bath, University of the West of England and University of Exeter. 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. This 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 the economics, law, politics and psychology of sustainability, as well as the geography and demographics of those affected.
There are four core units and a selection of optional units, which can be taken at Bristol, Bath, UWE or Exeter. Please be aware that you will be required to travel to partner institutions for some collaborative teaching. Over the summer you will complete a research-based dissertation of up to 15,000 words, individually supervised by a tutor with relevant experience. Visit our programme catalogue for full details of the structure and unit content for our MRes in Sustainable Futures. (http://www.bris.ac.uk/unit-programme-catalogue/RouteStructure.jsa?byCoho...)
The Faculty of Social Sciences and Law has an allocation of 1+3 (MRes and PhD) and +3 (PhD) ESRC scholarships for this interdisciplinary pathway. The closing date for studentship applications is early February 2018.
