Environmental challenges, such as climate change, deforestation and biodiversity loss, are the defining crises of our time. Essex is committed to helping students build the vital skills and knowledge they need to think critically about environmental issues and to respond to them sensitively. Essex is interested in studying how diverse cultures and societies interact with the environment locally and globally. From the use of technology, to consumer habits and political conflicts, students will examine the influence human activities have on the environment past, present and future. This course will cover topics including but not limited to: Sustainability; Cultural diversity and human rights; Environmental philosophy and ethics; Environmental policy and activism; Psychogeography; Nature writing and the arts. Graduates will be qualified to work in a number of fields and roles, including at NGOs, local and national governments, community-lead roles, the charitable sector, research facilities, at environment agencies, in human rights roles and in education.
