Course content

Our MA Climate, Risk and Society enables you to explore the social dimensions of climate risk and resilience from different perspectives - as a physical phenomenon, producing environmental hazards, or as a social and political construct, enabling a range of political interventions.

Module contents, methods training, and research projects emphasise social science approaches to climate change, risk and resilience.

The programme is aimed at anyone interested in how climate risk is understood, managed and mitigated by individuals, organisations and government. The MA Climate, Risk and Society explores climate change’s spatial and temporal impacts on society.

You will learn interdisciplinary approaches to climate-related risks from the physical and social sciences and develop expertise in climate risk through independent coursework in physical hazards, risk and resilience.

The programme is relevant and accessible to students from social science, a natural science or an engineering background. The MA offers additional training in social science methods.
