The advent of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) has made it possible to learn about topics from experts around the world … at your own pace and in your own home. The courses below will help you gain a more in-depth understanding of the science of climate change and climate impacts.
Our Earth: Its Climate, History and Processes (Univ of Manchester – Coursera) – beginner level, 14 hours to complete
Global Warming 1: The Science and Modelling of Climate Change (University of Chicago – Coursera) – intermediate level, 39 hours to complete. It’s relatively technical – but if you want to go deeper and really to try to understand the science, this course is highly recommended.
The Christian Rural and Environmental Studies programme – a collaboration of the John Ray Initiative, A Rocha and Ripon College Cuddesdon offers certificate and diploma programmes. The expert input and guidance is excellent, and the course integrates science and theology, and is kept affordable to reduce bars to access. Well worth exploring.
