MSc Climate Change and Policy, University of Sussex
The University of Sussex, UK, would like to invite applications for the MSc in Climate Change and Policy for entry in 2010. This is unique course that aims to provide state-of-the-art training for the rapidly expanding market in climate change policy professionals within the public, private, consultancy and not-for-profit sectors.
The programme addresses what is perhaps the most important issue of our time from a multidisciplinary perspective. Courses cover both the science of climate change and social science dimensions of policy responses. Students will acquire specialist knowledge of the causes and consequences of climate change and the policy issues surrounding mitigation and adaptation.
Courses are taught by leading researchers in these fields from within the Geography Department and the world renowned Science and Technology Policy Research Unit (SPRU). Students have the opportunity to develop a specialist thematic or regional enquiry in the dissertation.
Up to ten scholarships of £4,500 and three of £3,500 are available. The scholarships will be awarded to students who possess the highest academic ability and potential (not made on the basis of financial need).
