Environment and Development

The world faces serious and rapidly evolving environmental challenges on a number of fronts and at many levels. Simultaneously, the development of an economically fairer and socio-politically more just world remain paramount. This programme provides analytically rigorous, stimulating and balanced perspectives of the inter-relations between environment and development at the global, regional, national and local levels. Learn to critically examine how these challenges have been interpreted and are being addressed by academics, international agencies, government-level policy-makers, nongovernment development actors and of course, 'ordinary' people around the world. This master's programme examines the policy challenges in promoting healthy environments in the developing world; provides an analytically rigorous but broadly-based understanding of the inter-relations between environment and development at global, national and local levels; is designed for students interested in pursuing careers in environmental policy and planning in international government and non-governmental organisations, academia and journalism. **Careers** Our programmes are excellent preparation for careers in international and rural development, agricultural economics, and marketing within the food chain and policy. 96% of our graduates are in work or further study six months after graduating. Engagement with a wide variety of visiting speakers and field trips provides many opportunities for networking. Competitive internships and placements, and research dissertations are an opportunity to showcase your skills, undertake overseas field research or link with organisations in the development sector. **Modules** - Global environmental change, justice and development - Theories and practices of development - Ecosystem services - Addressing poverty and inequality through social policy - Energy, climate change and development
