Course content

Climate Change is a growing issue for environmental policy makers at international, national and sub-national levels, as well as for environmental managers and experts in public, private and non-profit making organisations.

Our Climate Change and Environmental Policy MSc provides you with a unique combination of training on the physical, social and policy aspects of climate change and on broader environmental policy and governance.

You will receive a solid foundation in the physical and social science of climate change and its impacts, including adaptation to, and mitigation of, climate change. You will also develop a critical understanding of the policy tools available to promote environmental protection.

This Masters programme combines modules taught at the School of Earth and Environment, with optional modules from the School of Geography and the School of Politics and International Studies and Leeds University Business School.

Our teaching draws on the latest cutting-edge research and is delivered by experts and the world’s leading researchers on climate change policy (e.g. IPCC lead authors, and a DEFRA UK lead advisor) to give you in-depth knowledge and guidance.

We offer the highest level and breadth of expert teaching in climate change and environmental policy. Hence, this course is ideal if you want to become an interdisciplinary environmental manager, consultant, advisor or policy maker, or if you are looking to improve your career prospects or make a career change.
