Modules

This page provides links to information about the various compulsory and optional modules that are used to construct the MSc course.

The total number of credits required for an MSc is 180 credits. The four compulsory modules provide a total of 120 credits, leaving a further 60 credits to be obtained from optional modules. These will mostly be selected from other Masters-level modules offered by the School of Environmental Sciences, though it is possible to take some modules offered by other Schools of study if they are relevant to the overall programme, such as DEV-M093 - Climate Change Policy for Development.

Compulsory Modules

ENV-MA51 - Climate Change: Physical Science Basis (20 credits)

ENV-MA68 - Energy and Climate Change (20 credits)

ENV-MB3Y - Research Skills (20 credits)

ENV-MB4X - Dissertation (MSc) (60 credits)

Optional Modules offered by ENV

The full list of Masters-level modules offered by the School of Environmental Sciences are listed in the ENV Taught Postgraduate Student Handbook (see About the MSc for where to find the Handbook).

Note that it is not possible to take some modules because their timetables clash with the compulsory climate change modules. The final selection must be agreed with the Course Director of the Climate Change MSc or with your Academic Adviser.

Optional Modules offered by other Schools of study

With the agreement of the Course Director of the Climate Change MSc it is possible to take modules offered by other Schools of study that are relevant to the overall course.
