Course Summary

This course offers a unique interdisciplinary approach. You’ll consider natural processes, social issues and political implications to give you the ultimate viewpoint. The interaction between environment and development is studied through analyzing policy processes at local, national and international levels. You’ll look at a large cast of actors – including policy makers, politicians, business administrators, rural and urban resource users, to see how these interactions play out. Plus you’ll use a wide range of critical and constructive skills, analytical techniques and contextual knowledge to advance your understanding of these processes. A key focus of our MSc is on the political ecology approach to understanding debates and policy processes underpinning responses to environmental and natural resource problems. Interest in the global environment and development has never been so intense. Environmental issues and problems have long been on local and national agendas, but increasingly over the last thirty years, on international agendas too. And you’ll focus on the political ecology approach to understanding debates and policy processes underpinning responses to environmental and natural resource problems. Upon completing your MSc, you’ll be equipped with a range of transferable skills, which means you can pursue a variety of exciting careers both in and beyond international development. You’ll also be well qualified to enter a PhD programme with a view to continuing to an academic career both in the UK and overseas.
