The Distance Mode of MA in Values and the Environment at Lancaster University

Aims and Outcomes

The MA in Values and the Environment (MAVE) and its distance mode (AwayMAVE) are the same course studied in two different ways.
The programme has three broad aims within the field of environmental concern:

(1) to provide those who wish to develop research careers in the field with a Master's level training in research.

(2) to provide a relevant qualification for those seeking to establish (or develop) careers in environmental policy or management;

(3) to provide a means by which people with a personal interest in matters of environmental concern can develop their understanding and knowledge.

On completion we expect students to have:

    • in-depth knowledge of five topics within philosophy or other environment-related disciplines (at most two of the latter)
    • the ability to use philosophical techniques of analysis and argumentation
    • where policy problems are addressed, the ability to apply philosophical skills and knowledge to their resolution
    • the ability to successfully plan and complete a substantial piece of independent research.
