Colin Holman

By doing the MSc in Climate Change at NUI Maynooth I have substantially deepened my understanding of the science, political and social impacts and issues around climate change. What I found most enjoyable about the course was its applied nature and delivery by distinguished academics and guest speakers. Also the MSc served to develop vital skills such as critical thinking, statistical techniques and developing and delivering on research ideas.

The MSc in Climate has opened a number of doors for me personally; there are great opportunities to continue research in the area within the department. At present I am continuing my studies with the Irish Climate Analysis and Research Units (ICARUS) on examining climate change impacts on the Irish water sector. Completing the MSc in Climate Change was crucial in developing the skills needed to take my interests to the next level.
