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 challenges posed by climate change are hugely complex and require a broad range of responses from many sectors of society. We currently lack many of the appropriate policies, institutions, and societal responses.
The only programme of its kind in the world, GCU's MSc Climate Justice explores one of the most pressing issues of our times. climate justice, where climate change, human rights and policy development intersect.
Climate Change is a growing issue for environmental policy makers at the international, national and sub-national levels, as well as for environmental managers and experts in public, private and non-profit making organisations.
The MSc in Environmental Dynamics and Climate Change course places particular emphasis on recent global and regional environmental and climatic change, the scientific basis and limitations of models and data collection techniques.
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.
The MSc in Geographic Information and Climate Change course provides cross-disciplinary training in the scientific basis of Geographic Information Systems (GIS), Satellite Remote Sensing and Earth System Modelling alongside aspects of climate change.
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.
Climate change is a multifaceted issue, with relevance across a wide range of economic sectors and policy areas. The MSc Climate Change offers you the chance to take a truly interdisciplinary approach to your study in climate change, engaging with academic, professional and popular literature.
The Climate Change. History, Culture, Society MA course provides you with the theories, methods and skills required to analyse climate change, and the responses it generates among different national, political and social groupings.
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.
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.
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.
The world’s climate is rapidly changing due to global warming, and will continue to do so for the decades and centuries ahead. This poses major challenges for future agricultural systems to provide food and other bioresources for the 9 billion people that will occupy the planet by 2050.
We currently offer 16 on-campus taught master’s programmes, 2 on-campus research LLM programmes, and 6 online LLM programmes. Some of our programmes are listed below. Our full selection of programmes can be found on our website.
