In this Sustainable Futures programme offered by the University of Bristol , you will develop rigorous research skills whilst cultivating a good understanding of the economics, law or politics of sustainability.
The MRes has an emphasis on practical research training, studying ESRC-accredited research methods that encourage you to think in broad theoretical and interdisciplinary terms about challenging environmental issues. You will learn how to plan, research and write a sophisticated dissertation.
As well as presenting a thorough introduction to academic research, the MRes offers excellent preparation for working for environmental ministries, agencies, consultancies or NGOs, or other organisations working for environmental change. Some students choose to enter the legal profession, carrying with them a broader understanding of how law operates in the context of sustainability and the environment.
The MRes in Sustainable Futures offers useful preparation for a number of careers. The MRes also provides the academic basis and preparation for students choosing the 1+3 programme (with three years of doctoral training following completion of this interdisciplinary Masters degree).
