Key features of the course

  • Develops essential skills for successfully addressing environmental issues.
  • A choice of professional or research routes.
  • Provides a rigorous approach to solving complex real world problems.

Career relevance

Our environmental management programme is for people who are interested in designing, managing and participating in more effective environmental decision-making processes. For example, if you are involved in setting up or responding to environmental or integrated management systems, planning new development projects or are trying to understand or manage sustainability. Students are drawn from industry, commerce, local and national governments, consultancies, non-governmental organisations and communities. They include people already involved in environmental management and those who wish to be – both personally and professionally.

The professional route, where you take the MSc professional project as your final module, is particularly suitable if you want to develop your career in industry, commerce, the public sector or the third sector. The research route is more applicable if you intend to develop a career in research or go on to undertake study leading to a PhD or other research degree.

Modules

This will be the capstone module of your chosen MSc. This is your opportunity to research a topic of your choice in what is likely to be a professional employment-related setting. Acting as an informed investigator you will design, conduct, analyse and report on your chosen research project, applying relevant conceptual, theoretical and methodological material at all stages of your work. You will be expected to carry out your research in a rigorous fashion and to an appropriate academic standard. Spanning only six months, this online module provides a challenging but valuable opportunity to engage in ? and learn from ? a research scenario of your choosing.
