Summary

Why choose this course In the wake of the 2015 United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, our MSc Sustainable Development provides you with the knowledge to help organisations move towards a greener future. This MSc examines the societal transformations required to tackle the climate emergency, protect the environment, and shift towards sustainable consumption and production.

This course is run by our Centre for Environment and Sustainability (CES) – an inter-disciplinary centre for forward-thinking environmental and sustainability-related research and postgraduate teaching.

Sustainable development graduates are equipped to tackle the strategic challenges being faced by companies, individuals and governments and implement the changes required to protect our planet.

What you will study Questioning what you thought you knew about sustainability and the environment, we’ll inspire you to face some of society’s biggest sustainability challenges.

We’ll provide insight into the latest thinking in numerous important areas, covering the essentials needed to analyse the relationship between environmental issues and human society. As part of this approach, you’ll evaluate political, socio-economic, ethical, cultural and regulatory frameworks, and acquire an understanding of the theory and application of sustainable development, while developing a sensitive appreciation of the issues surrounding it.

This course will enable you to hear from external speakers from industry, government and NGOs who are active in establishing sustainable development. It also provides a route to the Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment graduate membership.
