Course content

The Master of Research (MRes) in Environment, Energy and Resilience engages the latest critical thinking on risk management, critical infrastructure, public regulation, policy studies and the environmental sciences.

On completion of this programme, students will be able to demonstrate:

  • A critical understanding of research-based literature on environment and energy across a range of disciplines.
  • Comprehension of the relationships between theory and practice in the related fields of environment, energy and resilience.
  • Thorough and in depth understanding of key debates relating to environmental challenges, energy resource use and security, and the resilience and adaptability of human systems.
  • Detailed and comprehensive understanding of current issues in the disciplines within the theme of environment and energy studies.

The programme aims to equip students for careers as professional researchers in either academic or non-academic environments, by developing core research skills. Students will be encouraged to review and critically evaluate approaches to research and their application, and to identify and investigate their own original research questions.
