Climate change is high on the international development agenda and world political stage. This course is designed to meet the career needs of people working in international development and climate change policy and practice and international development. It covers a range of issues surrounding international and local dimensions, particularly the questions of mitigation and adaptation in resource-poor and vulnerable settings. Taught by a team of internationally-renowned natural scientists, policy analysts and economists, the MSc course material draws upon existing and ongoing research and applied work through the School of International Development and the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research. Its interdisciplinary approach ensures that students will also have the opportunity to collaborate with the School of Environmental Sciences through the science-based modules that focus on climate change. Please contact Dr Heike Schroeder for specific inquiries about the course.

Students take two core modules in the area of specialisation - Climate Change and Development 1: Science, Impacts and Adaptation (CCD1) in the Autumn Semester and Climate Change and Development 2: Governance, Policy and Society in the Spring Semester. (These are newly developed modules and replace the previous module on Climate Change Policy for Development. This will be updated soon on the website.) In addition, students can choose from a wide range of modules in the School of International Development, the School of Environmental Sciences and other schools across campus. Students may choose between the dissertation or the work placement module.
