This broad-based, flexible course prepares you for a range of environmental careers, from environmental specialist to a manager with an environmental remit.
Unusually, and possible uniquely, for an Environmental Management Masters you have the option to include Business and Management modules in your programme. In addition, through selecting particular modules and assessment options, the course can be tailored to suit your specialist interests and career aspirations. For example, this course will suit someone wishing to pursue a career in ecological consultancy, or a career in pollution control or environmental hazards and liabilities.
You’ll review how environmental systems work and how human behaviour impacts on them. From this, you’ll explore contemporary environmental management principles, tools, and legislation that we can use to address such impacts. Through reviewing case studies and current practice you’ll develop your knowledge of Environmental Impact Assessment, Environmental Management Systems, sustainability concepts such as the circular economy, plus resource management, environmental hazards and ecosystem services.
You’ll develop key skills needed by professional environmental managers working in the field, including:
environmental risks and decision-making;
survey and monitoring;
data management and analysis;
reporting and communication.
