Building the bridge between theory and practice is at the heart of sustainable development and with GSD your learning will go far beyond the classroom. Our pedagogical vision encourages practical action as a core component of your educational experience and our courses implement a hands-on, collaborative approach wherever possible. Warwick is also home to a number of active student-led initiatives and societies which promote the cause of sustainable development. And what's more, our Department has supported a number of GSD students with independent research projects focusing on issues related to sustainability. We maintain that practical learning is key to the praxis of sustainable development, and you can find out more below.
