Environment and Climate Policy

Our Environment and Climate Policy programmes are designed to help organisations be more effective in their efforts towards change. Modules draw from a wide range of disciplinary perspectives, concepts and methods including business economics, environmental policy, human geography, social development, the political economy and environmental law.

We offer a number of specialist degree programmes that can be studied online or on campus here at SOAS University of London.

Our online programmes are fully-supported by experienced tutors and staff, and a Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) facilitates which provides access to study materials and online resources.
