The programme is designed for graduates who want an advanced academic qualification in tackling climate change in business, industry, NGOs and government. The interdisciplinary nature of the course provides a detailed understanding of climate science and economics and a broad and integrated understanding of carbon management. Students can devise study programmes suited to their own personal interests and career goals, through their choice of individual research projects. The online delivery is formulated so as to allow study to be balanced alongside full-time employment and family commitments.
