This market-leading Master's course in Environmental Management addresses the management principles necessary for the successful implementation of sound environmental management practice and legal processes involved in environmental control at a range of scales.
The course develops an understanding of environmental processes and applies this to both the legal framework and management decision-making activities. The course seeks to raise your ability to understand and analyse environmental problems at Master's level, in order to develop solutions.
You will be presented with the tools needed for environmental management, including project management, life cycle analysis, accounting and reporting, environmental reviews and audits. The course includes the processes and legislative approaches related to the reduction of emissions to air, land and water, and the effects of pollution together with the legislative framework in which they are set.
This MSc is accredited by the Institution of Environmental Sciences (IES) and the Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management (CIWEM).
- You will be trained in critical analysis of legislative and management aspects of the environment.
- You will develop an understanding of the big picture as well as strong attention to detail – essential skills when it comes to critical analysis at Master’s level.
- We aim for you to leave the course with an ability to approach environmental management and legislation with an investigative attitude, to be innovative to assess a wide range of problems in the modern environment, and to explore solutions.
- The course places a lot of emphasis on individual student development but also involves team-working and presentations to develop your interpersonal skills.
