Because of the cross-cutting aspect of climate change and of the specificity of the region, the courses under the PGDip CC, MSc and PhD research thesis cover a broad range of topics, from climate sciences to the social, financial and economic aspects of climate change, traditional knowledge and the integration of climate change and disaster risk management.

Because of this, research students under the climate change programme are encouraged to collaborate with external co-supervisors from other USP faculties and/or other universities.
