The MSc, or Master of Science, is a popular Master’s degree designation. Internationally recognized, the MSc is typically awarded after about five to six years of rigorous study in what is usually a science-based field.

Classes in social sustainability are considered to be in an interdisciplinary field. Studies may include information useful to government agencies, the energy sector and environmental protection groups. Courses can examine the sustainability of actions and behaviors over time in relation to humans.

Education in the United Kingdom is a devolved matter with each of the countries of the United Kingdom having separate systems under different governments: the UK Government is responsible for England, and the Scottish Government, the Welsh Government and the Northern Ireland Executive are responsible for Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, respectively.
