MSc Environment and Planetary Health

The field of planetary health is an emerging one and is necessary for tackling many of the major contemporary challenges we experience in the world today, such as the climate, pollution, and biodiversity crises. The concept of planetary health recognises the reliance of human populations on healthy ecosystems, including the highly complex socio-ecological feedback mechanisms involved in interactions between humans and nature.

The aim of this MSc programme is to develop students that have an advanced interdisciplinary understanding of the interconnections between the natural environment, ecosystems, human health, and wellbeing. The programme draws on knowledge and skills from a range of disciplines including physical and human geography, life science, environmental sciences, health and medicine, and political science. A particular area of focus will be assessing the impact of the interconnected environmental, social, and health crises from a local to global scale, and developing management, mitigation, and adaptation strategies to address them.
