This degree addresses issues of environment and development and the interlinkages between them. Global climate change and poverty are two of the most large-scale and serious issues facing humankind. Both compromise human and environmental security and are increasingly interlinked. This degree aims to develop a critical understanding of the operation of socio-political and environmental processes from local to global scales. Particular emphasis will be laid upon the interconnectedness between political and socio-spatial theory, governance, civil society, environmental conflict, and climate change, amongst other issues. The course includes an innovative fieldcourse based in Rwanda on Climate-Environment-Sustainability Interactions and Threats to Livelihoods. Further details on modules and on the fieldtrip are available from the course director.

A wide variety of careers will be open to graduates from this programme in overseas development assistance for public, private and non-governmental organizations.

The United States is the most influential nation in the world. However, a number of challenges in recent years have called into question the sustainability of American leadership abroad and prosperity at home. These include, but are not limited to, the notion of American decline in relation to rising powers such as China: a political system that appears to have entered an extended period of dysfunction; recurring problems in race relations; and rising economic inequality. This MA degree programme, which is the first of its kind in Europe or North America, allows students to explore in depth the foreign policy and political challenges facing the United States. Drawing upon the disciplines of history and political science, it explores a wide variety of topics such as the origins of American exceptionalism, the importance placed upon individual liberty, the emergence of the US as a world power, the Cold War, transatlantic relations, presidential and congressional election, race and gender, partisanship and more. Modules in this programme are taught by resident UCD faculty and by visiting lecturers, who will consider theoretical and practical perspectives. The programme will interest those seeking a career in government, media, in the non-profit sector, in business and those hoping to undertake advanced study in these areas.
