Northumbria’s MSc Economics and Sustainability is for both students with a background in economics who wish to specialise in sustainability, and students from a non-economics background who wish to pursue a career in environmental economics. The study of economics alongside environmental and sustainable issues is an emerging discipline with excellent employment prospects. With the World waking up to the need to address climate change, economics is often at the centre of environmental policy-making.
Northumbria’s MSc Economics and Sustainability will provide you with state-of-the-art training in economics and policies for sustainability and climate change, as well as a broad grounding in environmental and resource economics.
Well-trained economics graduates are in high demand in the environmental sector, and this unique programme is specifically designed to prepare students for specialist roles as environmental economists in government, international organisations, industry, NGOs and consultancy, as well as for academic careers in research.
