Global Environment Challenges (Online Learning)

Drawing from the University's unique breadth of expertise, students on this programme develop an in-depth appreciation of how human activity drives environmental change. Human activity is changing the natural environment at an unprecedented rate. As a result, humanity faces a range of complex and interrelated challenges: global warming, ecosystem disruption, biodiversity loss, and, for many, increasing difficulty in meeting the basic human needs for energy, food, water and shelter. This part-time, online distance learning programme takes a multidisciplinary approach to understanding these contemporary environmental issues and will also develop our students' capacities to address these in professional life. This programme is affiliated with the University's Global Environment & Society Academy.
