This course is available for in-person and remote (online) learning.

This is a research-intensive course taken concurrently with either CRWF 8006 International Climate Change Policy and Economics or CRWF8014 Domestic Climate Change Policy and Economics, as part of the Master of Climate Change degree program. The course allows you to explore in greater depth a research topic relevant to either of these courses. Under the guidance of an academic supervisor you will extend and hone your research skills by following the process of identifying and defining a research topic; developing and presenting a research proposal and plan; conducting research by obtaining and analysing primary and/or secondary data and information; and presenting your findings in a seminar and in writing.

Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:

  1. Plan and conduct independent research on a supervised topic related to climate change policy, and communicate the context, methodologies and findings of that research clearly and effectively both orally and in writing
  2. Demonstrate ethically sound and professional research practice
