Applying biological and social anthropological approaches to the study of environment and development, this MSc focuses on implications of changing environment for production systems and human welfare, on sustainable use of natural resources in developing countries, and on environmental and welfare impacts of changing patterns of resource use with development. Integrating natural and social science schools of thought with methodological and practical dimensions of field work for the dissertation, this programme is an ideal training ground for any students hoping to go on to work with government, national or international NGOs or who wish to conduct further PhD research in the fields of environment and / or development.
This programme offers a high staff/student ratio, automatic affiliation to and participation in the high profile Human Ecology Research Group with its long record of fostering outstanding interdisciplinary Masters and PhD research, and an individualised programme of study and supervision that ensures students can tailor the course to meet their own needs.
