About this course

Climate change is undoubtedly one of the biggest challenges our world faces.Globally we already see some of the consequences: an increase in extreme weather events, the loss of habitable land, and growing concerns about food security, species loss and threats to biodiversity.International agreements aim to keep global warming well below a 2 degree threshold to prevent even more repercussions. But deciding how we go about reducing our emissions, and how we adapt to changes that have already happened, requires scientists and policy-makers with a broad understanding of both physical sciences and human systems.The 180-point Master of Climate Change Science and Policy will give you the necessary combination of policy and science knowledge to address the real-world problem of climate change. It's a cross-disciplinary programme which combines taught courses with a research essay or placement with an external organisation.
