Course synopsis

These unique programmes address what is perhaps the most important issue of our time from a multidisciplinary perspective.

The courses aim to provide state-of-the-art training for the rapidly expanding market in climate change professionals within the public, private, consultancy and not-for-profit sectors and the development field.

The programmes are multidisciplinary and students will acquire specialist knowledge of the causes of climate change, the physical and human consequences, and efforts to mitigate and adapt to a changing climate. In the Development course particular attention is paid to the specific consequences of climate change for poverty in developing countries; processes of adaptation; and policy responses.

Courses are taught by leading researchers in these fields from within the Geography Department and the world renowned Institute for Development Studies (IDS) and Science and Technology Policy Research Unit (SPRU). Students have the opportunity to develop a specialist thematic or regional enquiry in the dissertation.
