Why study the Sustainable Resources MSc

The extraction, supply and management of materials underpin every aspect of our lives. Take your mobile phone: it is made of hundreds of different types of materials, some of them precious and rare. After two years, you will replace it.
We need to we make the transition from a highly inefficient and wasteful system towards more sustainable systems where resources are maintained in the productive cycle for as long as possible, environmental impact is reduced and wealth and opportunities are distributed more fairly.
The Sustainable Resources MSc will give you the tools to address these challenges. Based at the Bartlett’s Institute for Sustainable Resources, this degree equips students with the skills and knowledge to become leaders in a field that is increasingly critical to business, policymakers and civil society around at the global and local levels. You will benefit from a truly interdisciplinary approach to the economics, policies and strategies of sustainable resources and first-hand experience from leading experts in the areas of the circular economy, resource efficiency and sustainable resource management.
