Course content

Environmental degradation and climate change are global emergencies, yet we live in a world that is ecologically and culturally diverse, and which is economically and socially unequal.

Sustainable solutions thus require knowledge of the complex interactions and trade-offs between environmental, economic, social and cultural sustainability. Our Masters course provides this essential interdisciplinary overview, allowing you to specialise in the sustainability of ecosystems, communities, landscapes, buildings and heritage, or to focus on the interactions between them.

An exciting collaboration between our Departments of Archaeology and Environment and Geography, you'll gain a fascinating insight into the sustainability of processes that take place over a few years to many thousands of years. Working across disciplines to address issues of current and future sustainability is both stimulating and challenging, requiring expertise from a range of subject areas. Our staff and students work together to create interdisciplinary teams, and our wide range of module options and guided independent research opportunities allow you to tailor your studies to your own interests and career ambitions.
