Gain a holistic perspective on climate change, combining both the natural science of the climate system with the social sciences 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. Through your course, you will take modules on the science and policy of climate change, on energy, climate and human behaviour, and on environmental politics and policy. In your final year you will undertake an independent research project under the supervision of a member of faculty active in climate change research. Improve your graduate prospects with an additional year in industry. You will spend your third year acquiring valuable work experience in your chosen field before returning to UEA for your final year. You will put what you have learned into practice, transforming theory into reality. You will also gain first-hand knowledge of your chosen field and generate crucial employer contacts to prepare you for a competitive job market. When securing your placement, you will benefit from our well-established commercial connections throughout the UK and beyond. In recent years our students have worked for small, mid-size and multinational enterprises in a diverse range of fields, including environmental consultancies, weather forecasting services, and governmental (local and national) and non-governmental organisations, including volcano observatories, geological surveys and conservation groups.
