MA Climate Change: History, Culture, Society

Campus Full time Part time 1 - 2 years September 2016 United Kingdom London + 1 more

This MA Programme (please see separate description for the MSc programme) provides students with the theories, methods and skills to analyse climate change from different historical, cultural and social perspectives, enabling students to better understand how people in different settings around the world make sense of climate change and the different ways they respond to it. [+]

MA Climate Change: History, Culture, Society This MA Programme (please see separate description for the MSc programme) provides students with the theories, methods and skills to analyse climate change from different historical, cultural and social perspectives, enabling students to better understand how people in different settings around the world make sense of climate change and the different ways they respond to it. Key benefits Direct access to world experts and their networks Part of a diverse and stimulating community of scholars Located in the heart of London; internships available Collaborative project work for student dissertations Description The MA starts from the premise that since the idea of climate change has penetrated into all aspects of human life, a fully cultural analysis of climate change and its responses is necessary to gain understanding, beyond that offered by scientific, political and economic analyses. This demands the study of a wide range of human beliefs, attributes and practices: peoples’ worldviews and values, the different ways knowledge is made, narratives of development and environmental change, the changing nature of expertise and cultural performances. This MA Programme therefore provides an introduction to all of these topics, as well as introducing students to the social status of contemporary climate change science. The Programme equips students to analyse different public discourses of climate change in developed and developing countries and to understand and critique how climate knowledge is used in different national political cultures. You must take a minimum of 180 credits and a maximum of 190 credits as outlined below. Details of all modules are at http://www.kcl.ac.uk/sspp/departments/geography/study/masters/timetablesmodules.aspx. Note that not all options in the “list of prescribed optional modules” or under “other optional modules” are offered every year. Part-time students: As part of your two-year schedule, plan to take the compulsory modules 7SSG5002, 7SSG5208 and 7SSG5210 in your first year, and 7SSG5211 (Dissertation) in your second year. The MA comprises a research dissertation (60 credits) and three compulsory modules: Climate Science and History (20 credits) and Climate Change and Culture (20 credits) and Practising Social Research (20 credits), plus 60 credits from a range of options available on topics including – environmental policy-making, the culture politics of nature, environment and cultural change, disasters and development, environmental actors, as well as the opportunity of completing an internship. Please note that not all optional modules run in any given year and you should not choose this programme on the expectation that an optional module will be running. Course purpose This MA programme (please see separate description for the MSc programme) provides students with the theories, methods and skills to analyse climate change from different historical, cultural and social perspectives, enabling students to better understand how people in different settings around the world make sense of climate change and the different ways they respond to it. This master’s programme starts from the premise that since the idea of climate change has penetrated into all aspects of human life, it is no longer possible to adequately understand and address the risks posed by climate change through only scientific, political and economic analysis. The programme is intended for humanities and social science students who wish to gain knowledge and skills in climate change and environmental science, or for students with a science background who wish to deepen their knowledge about historical and cultural aspects of climate change.

MA in War Studies The MA in War Studies enhances analytical, conceptual, research and critical thinking skills designed expressly to enhance employability and aid professional career development. You will gain an understanding of the phenomenon of war and conflict, along with its causes, conduct and consequences, from historical, political, philosophical, military and sociological viewpoints. Key benefits Designed to provide a postgraduate-level introduction to War Studies for students who have little or no specialist background in the field. A unique opportunity to study war from a multi-disciplinary perspective in order to achieve a sophisticated and well-rounded understanding of the phenomenon. A chance to develop a range of transferable skills that will enhance your employability, aid your professional-career development and help prepare you for postgraduate research. These include analytical, conceptual, critical-thinking, research and communication skills. You will be taught by some of the very best academics in the field. Departmental staff are internationally acknowledged experts in their areas of specialization; they are active researchers and routinely employ their latest findings in their teaching. An opportunity to study at a global centre of excellence that enjoys close relationships with other academic institutions, with think tanks, non-governmental organizations and policy-making bodies around the world. Opportunities to network with high-profile visitors, such as government ministers, ambassadors and generals, who frequently give talks in the Department. Description War is a key aspect of human experience, and people have long sought to understand it from a diverse range of perspectives. Students of war are drawn from the ranks of historians, social scientists, philosophers, jurists and artists. Practitioners of war find instrumental value in its study. These and others have brought their particular insights and concerns to bear on the subject. However, the study of war from any single standpoint risks producing an overly narrow perspective that cannot accommodate war’s complexity. Individual issues are elucidated but we remain a long way from understanding war “in the round”. Such a goal demands a different, more holisitic, approach. The MA in War Studies is designed to meet this demand by introducing students to a multidisciplinary approach to the study of war. As such, it provides an intellectual “toolbox” whose contents are drawn from a range of disciplines associated with the humanities and the social sciences. Students will not be trained as specialist historians, philosophers, strategists, etc., but they will be introduced to elements of various disciplines that are germane to the study of war. The challenge lies in combining them in order to achieve a sophisticated and rounded understanding of the subject. Course purpose To introduce the field of war studies to graduate students and professionals, professionals with an interest in deepening their understanding of war. You will gain an understanding of the phenomenon of war and conflict, along with its causes, conduct and consequences, from historical, political, philosophical, military and sociological viewpoints. The programme will appeal to students from a wide range of backgrounds including politics, history and strategic studies; and professionals in defence, diplomacy and foreign affairs wanting to reflect on the broader implications of their experiences. Course format and assessment Continuous assessment by essay; examinations and a dissertation. Structure Overview Required Modules The MA programme is designed as a one year full-time, or two year part-time taught programme which offers students the opportunity to engage critically with the field of war studies. The programme consists of a broad based multi-disciplinary curriculum. The MA programme contains the following elements: A compulsory module, 'Approaches to War'.Please click on the link below for a module description. Optional modules chosen from a range of possibilities (worth 80 credits in total). See the list of typical options below. Please note that we CANNOT GUARANTEE TO OFFER ALL OPTIONAL MODULES in any given year. A dissertation of 15,000 words. The dissertation is to be written over the Summer Term. Students may choose their own topic but it must fall within the remit of the study of war and must be approved by a member of staff. Part-time students are advised to take the core module in the first year of study and write the dissertation in the second year. Approaches to War Optional Modules Module options All optional modules are 40 credits unless otherwise specified. Option modules begin in week 3 of term 1. To maintain a beneficial student/staff ratio in the classroom and promote effective learning, there are a limited number of student places available on each module Some of the optional modules are prioritised for students on particular masters programmes. This means that even if a option is offered the year that you are here, you are not guaranteed a place on it. For a list of POSSIBLE option modules please refer to the MA in War Studies programme page here You are advised not to base your decision to join the degree programme soley on this list. NB Option modules are allocated using purpose-designed software which the department has created to maximise student choice while keeping each option class to a reasonable size. The system weighs student preferences, and gives priority where necessary to options of particular relevance to each specific MA programme.
