Socio-Ecological Economics and Policy: Profile

Economic and social systems do not exist in isolation from the physical environment. In this program, you learn how to analyze global challenges by applying socioeconomic concepts and empirical methods and derive policy recommendations from these analyses.
The SEEP Master of Science (MSc) Program provides students with the necessary knowledge and skills to critically analyse the combined social, ecological and economic crises facing humanity today. Policy approaches and the diversity of alternatives are explored with respect to issues such as climate change, social-ecological transformation, sustainable work, inequalities, growthmania and consumerism.

 

Traditional disciplinary approaches to analysis and policy formulation are insufficient. Instead interdisciplinary understanding is needed to comprehend the interactions and interdependencies of biophysical, social and economic systems. The SEEP MSc trains you in how to question and critically think about traditional approaches to economics and public policy that have become encapsulated in ideas such as sustainable development and Green growth.

 

Staff bring diverse perspectives to enable you to gain insight into heterodox economics, social policy, ecological economics, degrowth, governance, economic geography, political ecology and political science. The SEEP programme is based in the Socio-Economics Department which prospective students should note is a separate and independent department from economics.

Socio-Ecological Economics and Policy: Course Content

The SEEP MSc foundation courses in the first semester provide coverage of research and writing on contemporary policy challenges; the history and philosophy of science; international and European law, institutions and governance; economic growth and development. In the second semester two specialisations are chosen from four options and undertaken along with the methods course and an agent level behavioural socio-economics course. Quantitative and qualitative methods are treated as equally important in the programme and taught in combination, not as separate courses or with the former regarded as superior to the latter. In the second year the concentration areas and methods course continue during the third semester. In addition, across the third and fourth semesters a minor course is run allowing team work and practical community engagement, called service learning. In the fourth semester students turn to their thesis.
