Climate Change with a Year in Industry - University of East Anglia

**About the course** Learn to turn your concern about climate change into action with a specialist degree. This is a subject that’s never been more essential. The effects of climate change on human and natural systems are becoming more apparent and are expected to become severe if greenhouse gas emissions are not reduced. In 2015, 194 countries signed the historic Paris Agreement to tackle global warming, yet emissions are still rising. This course will teach you the skills you need to make a difference to this issue. And you will spend your third year in industry – putting what you’ve learnt into practice and transforming theory into reality. Through the course you will address the problems associated with climate change and explore possible solutions. On graduation you will have employability potential in many areas including policy-making within organisations, local or national government. You will acquire a strong skillset that will prepare you for a wide range of opportunities. **Course overview** This course will give you a broad perspective on climate change – not only inspiring you to make a difference, but showing you how you can contribute to solving the problems it creates. You will come to understand both the natural science of the climate system and the social science of addressing and adapting to the impacts of climate change. You will learn about the links between society, environment and climate change, focusing on the physical, geographical, political, and social aspects of how and why the climate is changing. This subject involves a wide range of perspectives and disciplines, and you will see how different approaches to climate change complement one another. You will also get a thorough grounding in the natural sciences, reflecting our unique multi-disciplinary approach.
