Climate change is a multifaceted issue, with relevance across a wide range of economic sectors and policy areas. The Postgraduate Diploma in Climate Change offers you the chance to take a truly interdisciplinary approach to your study in climate change, engaging with academic, professional and popular literature.

The programme will equip you with an understanding of climate change and how this challenge is being tackled by governments, business and other organisations. You will be able to critically evaluate scientific scenarios of future climate and associated impacts, assess the effectiveness of different policy approaches, and determine suitable business responses to the climate change challenge. You will also explore the key debates and ideas from a range of viewpoints, balancing science, policy and business practice.

The course is designed for both climate change practitioners wishing to further develop their understanding of key issues, and those hoping to move into this fast-developing sector. As the programme is offered through part-time, evening, face-to-face study, it provides a distinctive opportunity for practitioners to combine study with their career.

The compulsory modules give a comprehensive grounding in key topics and an opportunity to reflect on practice at both individual and corporate levels. These compulsory modules are complemented by a wide range of option modules, which allow you to pursue your own interests.
