Programme Description

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 programme provides a core range of areas to suit the professional development needs of the modern climate and development professional. This will be achieved through exposure to specialist climate justice topics together with a range of core modules which aim to develop generic professional skills applicable to dealing with the complexity of climate justice issues.

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.

Career prospects

Graduates from this programme could move on to a wide range of careers with organisations including development organisations, UN and associated bodies, local government, academia and research organisations.


Students will be assessed via a combination of coursework, oral presentations, on-line discussions, computer based exercises, case study analysis, reports and a final dissertation.
