About

The Sustainability course at Anglia Ruskin University provides an opportunity to study full-time whilst working part-time without relocating. You'll meet sustainability researchers from a range of disciplines and learn from inspirational practitioners, as well as gaining hands-on experience. 

Overview

The Sustainability course at Anglia Ruskin University will give you the knowledge, skills and critical thinking tools to lead the way to a more sustainable future in business, government and society.

In the first trimester the modules use a systems approach to give you leading-edge knowledge of key sustainability challenges, and of the scientific findings and policy issues that underlie them. Delivered as a blend of online material and week-long ‘residentials’ you’ll develop your ability to understand complex environmental, economic and social systems and apply this knowledge to help create a more sustainable future.

In the second trimester you’ll learn how to apply this knowledge in different contexts, as a sustainable business and for a sustainable economy. You’ll also spend two residential weeks learning and living at the Eden Project in Cornwall, experiencing first-hand how it functions as a world-renowned visitor attraction, educational center and sustainable business. 

You’ll also get the chance to practice what you have learned in the workplace, gaining valuable work experience and rehearsing your future as a ‘catalyst of change for sustainability’. Finally, in the final trimester of the course you’ll undertake your own piece of research, a Major Project on a sustainability topic of your choice.

Careers

When our students graduate they take up a wide variety of careers. Some use their prior experience and return to the business or sector they were familiar with, working with their new sustainability perspective to change it from the inside. Others use the MSc as an opportunity to start a new career or as the bridge to a change in career, becoming sustainability professionals in businesses, charities, governments and education.
