    Course Summary

    The University of Westminster offers an interdisciplinary MA degree in Energy and Environmental Changes. It includes a range of highly diverse topics including sustainability studies, business, law and international relations. It uses a holistic approach to the issue, examining all of the dynamic forces which affect industrialised nations attempting to shift to a low carbon production economy.

    You’ll learn about the current state of the world’s various energy and environmental policies, and study the ways energy production is linked to climate change and environmental degradation. You’ll study the issues governments face when determining energy policy, such as energy security, shifting international policy and the difficulty of making unpopular choices.

    This course is interdisciplinary in its basic form as well as its content. It is delivered in concert by the university’s Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment, the Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities and by the Westminster Business School.
