Sustainable Development (Climate Change and Risk Management)

This programme provides a practical and problem-based approach to learning focused on both the study of sustainable development and its implementation in a range of professional contexts. Students develop a grounding in the principles that underlie sustainability and the means by which to implement these in a range of settings across the globe. We cover the outcomes of recent policy making, eg, the Rio+20 United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development; specific policy areas such as biodiversity, climate change and forests; and social enterprise and sustainability. In addition, a range of option modules allow students to specialise in key aspects of sustainable development, climate change and environment.

Entry requirements

All applicants are considered individually on merit although we usually require a 2.1 honours degree (or equivalent) in a relevant discipline.

Assessment methods

All taught modules assessed by a variety of different types of coursework, presentations plus a dissertation of 15,000 words.
