Content

This interdisciplinary MSc explores the inter-dependencies between pressing environmental concerns and development pressures.

It explores these themes, the disputes around it and practical issues from an informed theoretical perspective, with an abiding concern for social justice claims. Conventional academic approaches focus on development or the environment as separate categories, while this programme looks at socioeconomic development as a socio-ecological and politicoecological process.

The programme focuses on grounding students in an awareness of the contested development paradigm and inculcating an awareness of economic, political and cultural links between environmental change and social inclusion.

This programme is affiliated with the University's Global Development Academy.
