MA in (Ecology, Environment and Sustainable Development)

Course Title: MA in (Ecology, Environment and Sustainable Development)

Deadline: 10th Dec. 2018


Today the world is facing serious problems due to human population explosion, poverty, inequality,pollution, political manipulation of the public for corporate benefit, the abuse of public and natural resources, and the dangers of toxic emissions, to name a few. By the turn of the millennium, as the dangers of global warming and the consequent climate change became evident, the limitations of a human-centric view of environment became clear. Therefore, in the recent years there has been a shift to a more holistic approach based on ecology - a view that sees humankind as part of an interconnected web of life. It becomes imperative to understand the interactions between the human systems and the natural world. The course will help students to develop professional skills for planning and implementing strategies to address various conservation related issues by taking into consideration related social issues.
