Environmental Sustainability MA (Hons)
Learn about biodiversity, renewable energy, and global warming and use your knowledge to shape and influence environmental policy
Dundee City Campus
Understanding the environment has never been more important. Our modern world uses vast amounts of energy, generates waste and pollution, degrades our environment, reduces biodiversity, and has profound effects on our health and welfare.
This course examines the interaction between people and their surroundings. You'll learn about the use of natural resources and how we can attain more sustainable lifestyles.
This degree can help you:
- tackle pollution
- ensure that new developments enhance rather than detract from their surroundings
- offer communities the chance to have a real say in how people use their natural resources
You'll study the principles and policies needed to help deliver sustainable development and consider both the local and global implications on natural resources.
You will develop specialist analytical and communication skills that will help you work effectively with communities, individuals, and other professionals.
“The lecturers are amazing. They are extremely helpful and they get to know everyone in the class. I have been on field trips to Iceland and Aviemore which were exceptional chances to learn from the expertise of the lecturers in the field.”
