This MA Programme (please see separate description for the MSc programme) provides students with the theories, methods and skills to analyse climate change from different historical, cultural and social perspectives, enabling students to better understand how people in different settings around the world make sense of climate change and the different ways they respond to it.

Key benefits

- Direct access to world experts and their networks

- Part of a diverse and stimulating community of scholars

- Located in the heart of London; internships available

- Collaborative project work for student dissertations

Please visit the website: http://www.kcl.ac.uk/study/postgraduate/taught-courses/climate-change-history-culture-society-ma.aspx

Course detail

- Description -

The MA starts from the premise that since the idea of climate change has penetrated into all aspects of human life, a fully cultural analysis of climate change and its responses is necessary to gain understanding, beyond that offered by scientific, political and economic analyses. This demands the study of a wide range of human beliefs, attributes and practices: peoples’ worldviews and values, the different ways knowledge is made, narratives of development and environmental change, the changing nature of expertise and cultural performances. This MA Programme therefore provides an introduction to all of these topics, as well as introducing students to the social status of contemporary climate change science

The Programme equips students to analyse different public discourses of climate change in developed and developing countries and to understand and critique how climate knowledge is used in different national political cultures.

Core modules:

- Practising Social Research
- Climate Change and Culture
- Climate: Science and History
- Dissertation

- Course purpose -

This master’s programme starts from the premise that since the idea of climate change has penetrated into all aspects of human life, it is no longer possible to adequately understand and address the risks posed by climate change through only scientific, political and economic analysis. The programme is intended for humanities and social science students who wish to gain knowledge and skills in climate change and environmental science, or for students with a science background who wish to deepen their knowledge about historical and cultural aspects of climate change.

- Course format and assessment -

TBC

Career propects

This MA is designed to prepare students for careers working in the many public and private sector organisations which have to deal with the human causes and consequences of climate change. The Programme develop students’ understanding of the intersection between climate change and culture, and cultivates transferable skills suitable for policy-facing organisations, cultural institutions, international and national governmental and non-governmental organisations and environmental consultancies. The Master’s programme also develops the necessary knowledge and research skills for students who wish to undertake PhD research on the human dimensions of climate change.

Visit the website: http://www.kcl.ac.uk/study/postgraduate/taught-courses/geopolitics-territory-and-security-ma.aspx

Course detail

- Description -

The MA Geopolitics, Territory and Security programme has established itself as a unique and specialised Masters programme, concentrating on the territorial component in interstate relations. It calls upon leading international (legal and technical) practitioners in its provision of teaching as well as leading internationally recognised scholars in this field, who all contribute to research-led lectures. It provides students with a theoretical and historical grounding in the principal concepts involved in the study of territory and international boundaries. While rooted in geopolitical and political geographical analysis, elements of international law and international relations theory will inevitably feature, given the subject under review.

The programme introduces students to legal, technical and practical components of the creation and maintenance of international boundaries on land and sea and familiarises students with the various processes involved in boundary and territorial dispute resolution. The programme reviews selected regional case studies, which illustrate some of the most prominent issues raised by the presence of trans-boundary natural resources and introduces the primary archival sources (documentary and cartographic) for the study of international boundary and territorial disputes.

- Course purpose -

For those seeking: an advanced appreciation of territorial geopolitics (from classical to critical); a theoretical and historical grounding in the principal concepts involved in territorial and international boundary studies; a practical application of these views and approaches to developing real-world situations. The programme is particularly suitable for social science students with an international interest, government and foreign service personnel, lawyers, military and strategic researchers.

- Course format and assessment -

Specialist taught modules assessed by written exam, essay and, occasionally, presentation and practical work. The three-month dissertation is core and can be taken overseas or in the UK.

Career prospects

Students on this programme have gone on to occupy senior management positions in government agencies and international consultancies; work with NGOs involved in dispute resolution; international law firms; government ministries; oil companies, departments of the United Nations and the European Union.

Conflict, Security and Development explores the conceptual, historical and policy issues surrounding security and development and how these manifest themselves in the wider context of contemporary warfare and international security.

Key benefits

Development and security are inextricably linked, yet all too often both academics and policy-makers address them separately. The MA in Conflict, Security, and Development is a unique globally-recognized programme that brings together these interrelated areas of study, acknowledging that conflict, insecurity, and underdevelopment interact in dynamic ways and that a full understanding of them requires a holistic approach. The programme exposes students to a variety of complex transnational issues, taking a multidisciplinary approach to some of the key questions facing policy-makers and scholars today. It is designed to enhance students’ analytical, research, and critical thinking skills, to provide them with detailed practical knowledge of conflict, security, and development around the world, and to prepare them to become leaders in the public and private sectors, government, and academia.

Course detail

- Description -

Security and development studies have remained largely unaffected by other's perspectives and priorities, and the sense that each area of study stems from a different set of assumptions and embraced a distinctive agenda has also been mirrored in the world of policymaking. This began to change in the 1990s when the importance of considering questions of security and development in their mutual interaction became increasingly recognised by practitioners and scholars alike. Our programme reflects this important trend and provides a unique course of study drawing upon the insights offered by a range of different disciplines, including international relations, history, development studies and anthropology.

This programme is designed to have broad-ranging appeal to those interested in pursuing graduate studies in security, conflict studies and development. You may find this programme to be of particular interest if you are a graduate in politics, history, international relations, economics and strategic studies; if you have practical experience in development and wish to reflect on the wider issues and implications of your experience; if you have worked with international organisations, including the UN and its specialised agencies or with NGOs in zones of conflict, and wish to reflect on your experience; or if you are a professional in development, defence, diplomacy and foreign affairs.

- Course purpose -

This programme is designed to provide students with an advanced and comprehensive understanding of the complex linkages between issues of security and development in contemporary international relations. The programme encourages you to explore the conceptual, historical and policy issues surrounding security and development and how these manifest themselves in the wider context of contemporary warfare and international security. Our programme’s core course introduces you to the major debates in the fields of security and international relations, regarding the interaction between processes of political and economic development, conflict, and violent social change.

- Course format and assessment -

Most 20-credit modules will be assessed by one 4,000-word essay or two 2,000-word essays. However, some 20-credit modules will be assessed on class participation and attendance, oral vivas or exams, or a combination of these.

Most 40-credit modules are assessed through a combination of essays (3,000-6,000 words), class participation and attendance, oral vivas and exams.

The dissertation module assessment will be on the research proposal (10%) and the dissertation (up to 15,000 words) (90%) for some programmes or solely on the dissertation for others.

Career prospects

Students on our MA programmes have gone on to build careers in further academic research, NGOs, civil service, NATO, UN, media and publishing, finance and investment, teaching, and the armed forces.
