Environment, Culture and Society MSc

This is a joint degree between LEC and the Department of Sociology. You choose between an MA or MSc pathway from a selection of social and natural science modules.

This innovative interdisciplinary course is aimed at those who want to engage critically, practically and creatively with global environmental problems. Issues such as food security, climate change, emergent risks and energy demands, require novel solutions from academic, NGO, business and government sectors.

The course brings together vital insights from social and natural sciences, and draws on cutting edge social, cultural and environmental theory.

Our staff have strong links with a range of scientific, policy, industrial and civic communities, which provide excellent opportunities for placements to gain practical experience. The combination of critical theory, experimental natural sciences and access to real-world contexts creates a unique course for anyone seeking to add value to their academic and/or applied career trajectory.
