Environment, Politics & Globalisation




Part Time, Full Time

| Admissions status: Open
For those seeking to develop their intellectual and practical skills to engage in both academic debates and the practical construction of environmental policy and politics at national and international scales.

The MA Environment, Politics and Globalisationprogramme is aimed at providing students with an in-depth and critical awareness of the politics and geographies shaping environments at a range of interrelated and ever shifting scales. In this context the programme involves a broad and reflexive interpretation of the terms ‘environment’, ‘politics’, and ‘globalisation’. It aims to enable students to develop the skills required to engage with both cutting edge academic literature and grounded policy scenarios so that they can participate in the dynamic and contested environmental arena. These aims are achieved by the unique combination of theoretical and practical modules that draw on staff environmental expertise, along with internships with participating environmental organisations.

You must take a minimum of 180 credits and a maximum of 190 credits as outlined below. Details of all modules are at http://www.kcl.ac.uk/sspp/departments/geography/study/masters/modules.aspx. Note that not all options in the “list of prescribed optional modules” or under “other optional modules” are offered every year.

Part-time students: As part of your two-year schedule, plan to take the compulsory modules 7SSG5002 and 7SSG5147 in your first year, and 7SSG5009 (Dissertation) in your second year.
