Climate change is the most pressing environmental issue facing humanity, affecting every facet of the world around us. We urgently need graduates who can lead future climate change solutions in all sectors of society.

Why study a BCC?

The Bachelor of Climate Change degree allows students to become an expert in one of a wide range of different major subjects that are needed to develop effective climate change solutions.

Students will develop a comprehensive understanding of climate change through the compulsory papers of the degree, including its scientific, social, cultural and economic dimensions. Mātauranga Māori is interwoven through the degree and students are taught the importance of valuing different worldviews when trying to develop authentic solutions to the challenges of climate change.

The degree culminates with a multidisciplinary group project, where students will work with an external organization to develop an effective low-carbon strategy. Students will graduate with skills and experiences that are in-demand, as we work towards a target of net zero emissions in Aotearoa by 2050.
