This full-time taught Master’s course (MSc or MPhil) is offered over 13 months, beginning in January. It provides interdisciplinary training in climate change and sustainable development, with a focus on the issues of relevance to African development. The course is designed for both recent graduates as well as those with several years’ experience and who wish to gain a broad understanding of the issues involved in climate change and sustainable development from an African and developing world perspective. The curriculum comprises two compulsory core courses, EGS5031F: Introduction to Climate Change & Sustainable Development and EGS5032F/S: Climate Change Adaptation & Mitigation (details of these courses are presented later in this section). In addition, students will choose at least two elective courses, chosen from a range of courses which offer the student the opportunity to explore new areas, or look at climate and development through existing disciplinary backgrounds. A partial list and details of these courses are available from the ACDI handbook.
