This course provides a unique combination of training on the physical, social and policy aspects of climate change and on broader environmental policy. It provides students with a solid foundation in the physical science of climate change, climate change impacts, adaptation to and mitigation of climate change, and with a critical understanding of the policy tools that can be used to promote environmental protection.
It combines modules taught at the School of Earth and Environment, with optional modules from the School of Geography and the School of Politics and International Studies, and a specialist dissertation gives students a chance to examine the detail of an issue of their choice. The course provides cutting-edge research led teaching drawing on the latest research undertaken at the School of Earth and Environment.
Four lead authors of the IPCC, which advises world governments on how to tackle the evolving and complex issue of climate change, teach on the programme or undertake research at the School of Earth and Environment. The School also co-hosts the ESRC funded Centre for Climate Change Economics and Policy (CCCEP) which brings together some of the world's leading researchers on climate change policy from many different disciplines.
