About this Double Degree programme

Organised jointly by LSE and Peking University (PKU), the Double Master’s Degree in Environmental Policy, Technology and Health is a unique and exciting interdisciplinary advanced programme combining the strengths of PKU in environmental science and health with the strengths of LSE in environmental economics and policy.

The programme comprises the Master of Environmental Management at PKU in Year 1, while in Year 2 at LSE students can choose one of the following MSc programmes:

The programme offers an outstanding opportunity for graduate students and professionals to get the state-of-the-art knowledge and skills required to address the great environmental and health challenges of our time.

It combines the study of conceptual and scientific foundations of environmental science, health, policy and economics with practical tools of analysis, including state-of-the-art research methods.

You'll learn to apply the latest concepts and methods to the analysis and evaluation of a wide range of environmental problems, policies and interventions. Students will also obtain an in-depth understanding of the scientific, economic and political dimensions of climate change and associated global environmental problems.

The flexible structure of the programmes enables you to choose from a wide range of options which complement one another, allowing you to tailor your study towards your individual career and/or future study objectives.

Once you successfully complete your studies at both institutions, you will be conferred a Master of Environmental Management at PKU, and either the a) MSc Environmental Policy and Regulation, b) MSc Environment and Development, or c) MSc Environmental Economics and Climate Change at LSE.
