Lead organisations and society towards a zero-carbon world by developing the knowledge and skills to deliver initiatives with real impact.
In the face of a climate emergency, we live in a world where zero carbon is the only way forward. In the middle of this are businesses, organisations and industries all tackling this complex transition. More than ever, they need a climate-literate workforce prepared to lead the way and drive organisational change. At Bath, our Zero Carbon Futures course is designed to do just that. It gives you the technical knowledge and transformative thinking required to create science-based, evidence-led climate initiatives, together with the leadership skills to turn these initiatives into reality.
We believe that you can deliver impact as part of your studies so instead of a doing a dissertation, you'll complete your degree with a consultancy project. You'll work with partners such as businesses, charities, government and the local community on low-carbon projects linked to real challenges.

A flexible and collaborative learning experience
Our course includes flexible, hybrid learning options so that students who cannot always be on campus can engage fully and build valuable remote-working skills. It also allows us to reduce the carbon impact of the course.
We take a team-based approach to teaching. Throughout the course you’ll work in diverse groups with students from a range of backgrounds so that each cohort has a unique educational experience.
Your future starts here
We embed professional skills and employability development into the course to help prepare you for your career. Our Faculty’s postgraduate employability team runs professional skills workshops, and one-to-one sessions to help you with your CV and interview preparation.
We expect graduates from our course to design and deliver zero-carbon projects in a range of organisations, including businesses, charities, NGOs and government.
We also offer this course as a two-year, part-time MSc.
