This interdisciplinary Masters is offered in association with the Departments of Architecture, Engineering, Geography, Land Economy and the Judge Business School. These Departments all deliver full-time sustainability-related postgraduate degrees.
It also builds on the success of CPSL’s other programmes, including: The Prince of Wales’s Business and Sustainability Programme – in its 17th year; the Climate Leadership Programme; and the Postgraduate Certificate in Sustainable Business (PCSB) – in its 14th year.
The main components of the Masters are:
• Four week-long residential workshops in Cambridge, usually in September and April of each academic year.
• E-learning via a virtual learning environment between the residential workshops.
• Two individual work-based assignments.
• A group project around an area of mutual relevance.
• An individual research dissertation.
The learning approach is highly interactive and designed to encourage reflection and debate. Participants are supported by a team of expert tutors, directors of studies and supervisors. The speakers, lecturers and facilitators are leading experts and practitioners from academia, business government and civil society.
A key feature of the Programme is the opportunities it provides for: shared-learning from peers; benchmarking against other organisations; and networking with the wide range of contributors.
