The MA Climate, Justice and Sustainability tackles the most pressing global issue of our time – how to manage human exploitation of our natural environment sustainably, and fairly. This is a unique programme, involving a collaboration between MIC’s Departments of Geography and Philosophy, covering fundamental issues such as environmental ethics and climate justice, as well as more practical topics like social and environmental sustainability.

Longer term thinking and new approaches to development and prosperity are urgently required. Persistent and worsening ecological crises present fundamental questions, including the need to think about challenges to prosperity as well as justice and rights issues, reversals of development gains and resulting conflicts. The programme draws on MIC’s established strengths in the Faculty of Arts, combining expertise from across the faculty to deliver a focused Master of Arts programme on Climate, Justice and Sustainability. The Department of Geography has established teaching and research expertise in Sustainability, Just Transitions and Political Ecology. The Department of Philosophy has a growing international reputation in Environmental Ethics, Sustainability Citizenship and Intergenerational Justice. In partnership, these Departments will provide a unique offering which targets a growing and urgent academic need for graduates of technical, theoretical and practical proficiency, equipped with the necessary skills to address our most profound challenges as a global community.
