The Rhodes University Education Department and Environmental Learning Research Centre (ELRC) offer opportunities for Masters Studies in Environment and Sustainability Education. This research programme contributes knowledge on learning, sustainability and social and education system change. 
Between 10 and 15 scholars are registered in this programme at any one time. Scholars engage in a variety of research projects, including research in community and youth education contexts, workplace learning contexts, schools, colleges and universities. Research includes both micro-level studies, and wider system-oriented studies.

Our scholars are supported through regular Masters weeks (four times per annum), regular seminars, high quality supervision and support, electronically accessible library resources and access to significant knowledge networks. Masters researchers can study either fulltime or part-time. Excellent facilities exist for full-time scholars at the ELRC.
