This programme is one of five South West Doctoral Training Partnershipinterdisciplinary pathways that are delivered in partnership with the Universities of Bath and Exeter.
Sustainability research asks how human wellbeing can be maintained and enhanced for the long term, given rising populations, limited natural resources and a fragile environment. This field, with its clear applied focus and strong strategic future-directed policy implications, has social sciences at its heart. It also requires a broad interdisciplinary approach and an understanding of economics, law, politics and psychology of sustainability, as well as the geography and demographics of those affected.
