Program Description

MSc Environmental Management

University of Derby Online Learning

There’s a national need for environmental managers and this online MSc Environmental Management degree is designed to help you become one. It’s also ideal preparation for other fields of work, such as environmental consultancy or pollution control. Because it’s available to study online, it allows you to choose the most convenient time and place to study, fitting in around your work or personal commitments.

Climate Change pathway option

Due to the growing importance of climate change and its impact on informing national and regional decision making and policy development, we have introduced a specialist pathway – MSc Environmental Management (Climate Change). An ideal choice if you wish to gain insight into this dynamic area. The climate change pathway assumes no specialist climate change knowledge.

Accredited by Professional Bodies

Accredited by the Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment (IEMA), our MSc Environmental Management gives you Associate Membership of this professional body, bringing benefits such as free events and publications that keep you updated on important changes in legislation.

In addition, the MSc Environmental Management is also accredited by the Institution of Environmental Sciences (IES) and the Committee of Heads of Environmental Sciences, (CHES). This means that once you enrol on the course, you are automatically eligible for student membership of the Institution, which is free of charge. On completion of the course, student members are automatically eligible to become Associate Members.

Popular with those already in work

This degree is a popular choice for those already working in roles that require a good understanding of the principles of environmental management and their application, or who are looking for career development and progression into similar areas.

Online study is a great way of fitting professional development around your other commitments. Course modules still operate within a fixed trimester but you can choose to study during the day, in the evenings or at the weekend rather than having to attend fixed lectures.

Accrue qualifications along the way – not just at the very end

We would encourage you to complete the full MSc, but if you aren’t able to, you can still gain awards along the way.

  • Complete three modules (60 credits), you'll be awarded a Postgraduate Certificate (PG Cert)
  • Complete a further three modules (60 credits) gives you a Postgraduate Diploma (PG Dip)
  • To gain the full MSc, you will then need to take an additional Independent Study (triple module, 60 credits).
