This programme is aimed at talented graduates seeking to develop or enhance their expertise in the fields of environmental policy, management, protection and advocacy. Through a demanding academic curriculum and practice-based learning opportunities, students develop the skills and knowledge needed for professional employment in the public, private and non-profit sectors.

The programme is provided by the School of Geographical Sciences, one of the top-ranked geography departments in the UK and a highly regarded centre for research and teaching in environmental processes, systems and the social sciences. Staff in the school have been directly involved in advising the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and regularly engage with policymakers, industry and non-profit organisations at local, national and international levels.

The programme is closely affiliated with the University's Cabot Institute, which promotes multidisciplinary research around global environmental change, and benefits from our location in the city of Bristol, the 2015 European Green Capital and a vibrant hub of environmental activism and technological innovation.
