Graduates from this programme move to a wide range of careers in organisations including development organisations, UN and associated bodies, local government, academia and research organisations.
Climate Justice is an increasingly important global topic and is expected to grow as climate issues impact more people, requiring domestic and international policy making to focus more on values, ethics and justice.

The aim of the masters is to provide in-depth understanding, analysis and knowledge about the principles that underpin climate justice - human rights, development and climate change.
The programme is tailored to provide a practical angle to climate justice to allow students to graduate with a Masters which provides them with practical skills, approaches and methodologies for addressing climate justice in their future work plans.
