Course content

This prestigious Masters programme gives you a deep understanding of the interactions between human society and the various environments we inhabit.

You’ll have the choice of a huge range of modules thanks to our diverse expertise, with a particularly strong current in climate change and sustainability. In fact, you can choose to adopt one of our Sustainability Pathways which exploit our research strengths in the field to provide a more focused degree. Whatever mix of modules you choose, your course will culminate in a Masters-level dissertation that allows you to explore a specific topic in greater depth.

We conduct some of the most important climate research in the world, alongside pioneering work in meteorology, oceanography, volcanology and a whole range of interdisciplinary topics, so you’ll be working with truly world-class experts on cutting-edge topics.

In collaboration with the various foundations of the Iberdrola Group, the ScottishPower Foundation has announced 28 new postgraduate energy and environment scholarship grants to be split amongst 7 of the UK’s most respected universities, including UEA.
