Master Climate Change and International Development - Máster en Cambio Climático y Desarrollo Internacional
The MSc in Environmental Dynamics and Climate Change course places particular emphasis on recent global and regional environmental and climatic change, the scientific basis and limitations of models and data collection techniques. It combines the international research strengths of staff within the departments of Geography and Biosciences around environmental and climate dynamics (processes and mechanisms involved in stability and change), marine and ecosystem biology, and environmental management and sustainable development.
Graduates from this course will have extensive knowledge of the current scientific issues underpinning climatic change and environmental and ecosystem dynamics, and the practical problem solving, ICT, and communication skills required for a successful career in the environmental service industry, regulating bodies or academia.
Normally a 2:2 degree in an approved subject.
IELTS 6.5 (with a minimum of 5.5 in each component) or equivalent English test.
As a student on the MSc Environmental Dynamics and Climate Change degree you will study compulsory modules in addition to a range of optional modules. Compulsory modules are as follows:
Core Science Skills
Satellite Remote Sensing
Principles of Environmental Dynamics and Climatic Change
+ Two Optional Modules from the following selection:
Modelling Earth Systems
Environmental Assessment and Management
Climate Change and Policy
Programming in Java
Geographical Information Systems
Followed by a research project in Part Two:
Many students choose Geography because of the scope it provides for studying a wide range of current themes and issues, the important insights it offers for understanding our contemporary world, and the opportunity to put this knowledge into practice through fieldwork. However, what many students do not realise before coming to university is that a Geography degree also offers a broad range of employment opportunities, allowing graduates to pursue a flexible and varied career path.
