About Climate & Climate Change
Masters degrees in Climate & Climate Change equip postgraduates with the skills to analyse and model past climate variability, current trends and causes of change.
Taught MSc degrees are typical for the field, though research oriented MRes and MPhil programmes may also be available at some institutions. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Environmental Science
Courses in this field encourage youprovide an opportunity to study past, present and future climate change. They also develop an understanding of the models used to monitor these processes and their environmental impacts. to develop an understanding and modelling of future climate change, the detection and attribution of past change and the prediction of impacts of climate change on the environment.
Issues covered include topics such as adaptation and mitigation, suitability and conservation, and the social and cultural impacts of climate change. You may exploreConsideration is given to a range of ecosystems, including analysis of their biodiversity and methods for maintenance and protection. Practical training canmay include methods such as geotechnical analysis and geographical information systems (GIS). Climate change law and policy may also be a key component.
Traditional careers include routes into conservation, either for agencies, large NGOs or even charities. You may also explore work within industrial sectors such as agriculture, or government legislation and regulation.

The question is no longer if our climate will change, but how will it change and how will we adapt to these changes? Adaption and mitigation to global warming, the greenhouse effect and climate change all form the basis of the master's Climate Studies programme in Wageningen. Read more
Based in the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) at the School of Environmental Sciences (ENV), this course will give you an authoritative understanding of climate change – including recent climate history, present-day variations and climate prediction. Read more
It is now recognised that the level of greenhouse gas emissions that have already accumulated in the atmosphere means some climate change is inevitable, meaning that effectiveness in dealing with climate impacts is critical for the prospects of development. Read more
Based upon our highly successful on-campus MSc Carbon Management, this online programme utilises a blend of interactive content, videos, virtual case studies and online discussions to explore the science and business responses to climate change. Read more
Our Climate Change. Environment, Science & Policy MSc course is an opportunity for graduates of geography, physical sciences, engineering and computer sciences to explore specific issues relating to climate and environmental change at an advanced level. Read more
