Course content

Pursue your research degree with an internationally known institute that works with influential partners, including government and industry.

Established in early 2011, the Global Sustainability Institute’s core research questions are based around personal motivations and systems change, in relation to sustainability.

This translates into three key research areas:

  • Consumption & Change
  • Global Risk & Resilience
  • Education for Sustainability.

We collaborate with departments throughout Anglia Ruskin, as well as with numerous external organisations, including the UK's Foreign & Commonwealth Office, Mott Macdonald and Lloyd’s of London.

It’s an inspiring environment in which to conduct research and influence the world – and we can offer you high-quality supervision from influential figures in the sustainability field.
