The Pacific Centre for Environment and Sustainable Development (PaCE-SD) works with all faculties across the University to offer postgraduate programmes in climate change. This includes:

  • A postgraduate diploma in climate change (PGDip CC) that consists in the completion of four 400-level courses
  • A MSc in climate change based on a research thesis
  • A PhD in climate change based on a research thesis


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.

Program taught in:
  • English
