BASc Global Sustainable Development

Warwick's BASc in Global Sustainable Development takes an interdisciplinary approach to examining global issues, looking at the different solutions offered, their implications, limitations and interconnectivity.

As part of this degree, you will be able to work with others studying different disciplines to explore the environmental, social and economic aspects of an issue, and develop your own independent research project focusing on the issues that interest you most.

The degree structure includes a comprehensive research methods training programme that is fully integrated into the course.

You can choose to spend part of your second year overseas at one of our partner institutions, including a leading university in Australia.
