This MA highlights a range of environmental and developmental challenges surrounding sustainability. You’ll gain an understanding of how policy has sought to address them.

You are exposed to a range of tools for understanding how knowledge, institutions, social relations and power affect these issues. This allows you to develop a deep understanding of the relationship between environment, development and political policy.

How will I study?

You will take core modules and choose options, which can also be from other Global Studies courses. Research methods and professional skills training prepares you for further research and a professional career. In the summer, you work on your dissertation, or on a dissertation with a placement.
