This postgraduate course focuses on using the application of economic principles to make sustainability and environmental management work in practice.
Designed to have a real-world focus, the course addresses genuine topical issues and ensures practical application of your knowledge as well the opportunity to experience Ecological Economics first hand.

You'll also be well-equipped to examine and criticise how environmental and social policy is formulated and implemented in developed and developing world economies.
