Presentación

This programme is offered either full and part time basis.
Are you a natural resource specialist or agriculturalist? Seize your chance to take an MSc that offers a unique interdisciplinary approach. You’ll consider natural processes, social issues and political implications to give you the ultimate viewpoint.

The interaction between environment and development is studied through analysing policy processes at local, national and international levels. You’ll look at a large cast of actors – including policy makers, politicians, business administrators, rural and urban resource users, to see how these interactions play out. Plus you’ll use a wide range of critical and constructive skills, analytical techniques and contextual knowledge to advance your understanding of these processes.

A key focus of our MSc is on the political ecology approach to understanding debates and policy processes underpinning responses to environmental and natural resource problems.
