Course content

All environmental issues derive from natural processes, but at the same time are social and political, and it is this unique interdisciplinary approach which drives this MSc. It will appeal to natural resource specialists and agriculturalists, as well as those from a social science background who work or are interested in and wish to study development issues, sustainability and the environment.

The interaction between environment and development is studied through analysing policy processes at local, national and international levels, as played out by a large cast of actors: policy makers, politicians, business administrators, rural and urban resource users.

We use a wide range of critical and constructive skills, analytical techniques and contextual knowledge to advance our understanding of these processes. A main focus of the MSc is on the political ecology approach to understanding debates and policy processes underpinning responses to environmental and natural resource problems.
