MSc in Integrated Urban and Rural Environmental Management

The M.Sc. in Integrated Urban and Rural Environmental Management commenced in September 1998 in response to the need for increased capacity building in the area of environmental management in the region. The programme consists of four core courses, five specialisation streams, and a research project. The entire course of study covers a twelve month period.
