Explore environmental challenges from fresh perspectives with our interdisciplinary Environment, Politics and Philosophy degree.
- Situate environmental issues in their social, cultural and historical contexts, at local, regional and global levels.
- Apply political and philosophical thinking to environmental action, from the personal to the institutional.
- Develop strategies that make connections between individual awareness and collective participation – become a change-maker.
Year one - Introductions and foundations: develop your understanding of the connections between different ways of thinking about environmental issues, and follow a broad curriculum which allows you to ask questions, challenge your own assumptions, interrogate evidence, data and opinions. Year two - Practical, applied, relevant: this year is where you will deepen your understanding of philosophical approaches to ecology and the politics of social change, alongside the acquisition of professional skills and the application of your knowledge and understanding to a defined problem or issue. Year three - Achievement, consolidation, creativity: your final project in the third year brings all this together. You’ll identify your own area of study, develop your proposal and put it into practice. This might be an extended piece of academic writing, but it might also be a pitch to a local employer, a community project or the creation of digital resources.
We’ll assess your progress through a variety of coursework tasks including:
- Discussion papers.
