Months of entry
This degree is based on a simple premise: understanding global issues such as climate change, sustainable development, or biodiversity requires in-depth knowledge of political, society and moral dimensions of environmental problems and solutions.
The GEPS degree provides a distinctive multidisciplinary approach to these issues. It is social science-based: while exploring the scientific basis of environmental issues, its main focus is on the political, moral and social dynamics shaping how that science is interpreted and applied. GEPS is also practice-oriented: the programme deals with current problems and proposed solutions.
Courses will engage directly with primary sources and events. Students may apply to complete a project-based report linked to a placement within an NGO, government agency, political party, or business.
