PURPOSE
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.

DESCRIPTION
This programme provides in-depth knowledge and a critical awareness of the politics and geographies shaping environments, through an exploration of the issues and debates surrounding the construction of environmental policy at national and international scales. Local case studies are supplemented by broader level analyses of global environmental issues, policies and politics. A unique combination of theoretical and policy-relevant modules draw on the environmental expertise of the staff and internships with participating environmental organisations.

This programme comprises a core dissertation and two compulsory modules: Globalisation & the Environment and Practising Social Research I, plus 60 credits from a range of options available on topics covering the culture politics of nature, consumers and the environment, disasters and development, environmental actors as well as the opportunity of completing an internship.

Please note that not all modules run in any given year and you should not choose this programme on the expectation that an optional module will be running.
