You undertake research training provided through the ESRC-approved Social Sciences Training Programme in the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences. This is complemented by subject-specific training in applied research skills, and in environmental law and policy within the Law School. The programme is portable in that it can be taken by any student intending to go on to PhD study, whether at Newcastle or elsewhere, and provides the initial research training element of any 1+3 programme (Masters degree + PhD).
You take modules to a value of 180 credits, including a dissertation submitted at the end of the summer semester (60 credits). Compulsory modules typically include: applied research methods in law; foundations of environmental law and policy; thinking about research; and research techniques and dissertation preparation.
Optional modules may include: international environmental law; science, climate change and environmental justice; biodiversity and natural resources; introduction to planning law; environmental impact assessment - law & practice. Alternative modules may be undertaken from level 7 modules in other schools, subject to the approval of the degree programme director.
Assessment of modules is by course work essays and written examinations, and most classes are taught in seminar groups.
