An MSc is a Master of Science degree. This academic title is granted to individuals who have demonstrated a high level of knowledge in a field of study. Typically, an MSc is based on scientific learning, but not always.

What is an MSc in Environmental Study? It is an interdisciplinary study of environmental topics and issues. This generalist degree focuses on understanding both natural and man-made environments. Most students complete a specialization within environmental studies, such as ecosystem conservation and management, business and the environment, sustainable land management, use and policy, and industrial ecology and green design. Environmental study programs often require significant field and lab work. Courses a student may take include economics and the environment, environmental communication, and environmental perspectives and methods.

Along with skills specific to an individual’s area of specialization, students usually develop a broader set of transferable skills. Graduates may become adept at gathering, analyzing and communicating complex ideas. Individuals may also gain excellent research and problem-solving skills that transfer well to other professions and can be applied in daily life as well.

The cost of earning a master’s degree in environmental studies can vary depending on a variety of factors, including location and length of the program. The recommended course of action is to contact the school of your choice for more information on tuition and fees.

There are a wide variety of jobs available to graduates due to the generalized nature of this degree. Individuals may find that they are well-suited for positions as environmental consultants, nature conservation officers, environmental managers, sustainability consultants, or water quality scientists. Other jobs that are related to environmental studies may be landscape architect, toxicologist or town planner. There are also many volunteer opportunities available to gain work experience, if needed.

Environmental studies are gaining in popularity, so postgraduate degrees are offered online and at schools in many countries. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.

Sustainability is more than just a buzzword. Raw materials are one of the fastest depleting resources on Earth. A steady and sustainable supply of many of these materials is vital for a decarbonising society, renewable energy infrastructure, electric mobility but also consumer products and electronics. The outdated make-take-use-dispose model is no longer valid in a world of finite resources. In order to deal with this challenge, three leading European universities cooperated to develop a new Erasmus+ Master programme – the International Master of Science in Sustainable and Innovative Natural Resource Management (SINReM). SINReM was created to educate a new generation of professionals who can engineer technology to reinvent materials science, and gain competence, expertise and confidence in developing solutions in the sustainable use of materials. -
