This MSc is ideally suited for students looking to gain a greater understanding of environmental science and environmental management. This degree aims to address environmental issues within the local, regional and global context.
Within the programme students will cover courses in environmental pollution, sustainable resource management, environmental management, catchment management and environmental impact assessments. During these courses they will develop key skills in environmental policy, legislation, risk assessment models and writing management plans. The students will gain a wide understanding of landscape science within a context that develops upon empirical details.
These skills will make the graduates ideal candidates for positions in environmental consultancies, regulators and NGOs.
A UK 2:1 honours degree (or international equivalent), in a biological, environmental or physical science, geography, or other relevant subject; applicants with a 2ii (or equivalent), particularly with some relevant experience, may also be considered. We also consider individuals with degrees in a wider range of disciplines who are clearly motivated by the programme and have some relevant experience.
