Course content

Our Environmental Politics MRes examines environmental politics at the intersections of social justice and radical activism.

You’ll learn with researchers who are analysing key issues including climate emergency and its responses, environmental risk, water resource management, biodiversity and rewilding, nature-people conflict, extractivism and energy supply.
You’ll consider how environmental interventions and policies are designed, negotiated, disputed and implemented within government, the corporate sector and civil society.
Making full use of our specialist facilities you’ll work on a dedicated research project under the supervision of an academic member of staff who specialises in your area of research. You’ll be linked to our Centre for Spatial, Environmental and Cultural Politics, and our Centre for Aquatic Environments.
Studying in Brighton & Hove, you can make the most of our networks and expertise in a forward-thinking city of protest, diversity and politics, located next to the South Downs National Park.
