Course Summary

Successful environmental policy depends on the ability of its makers to bring together scientific information, analytical thinking and an awareness of the legal, social and political realities of environmental regulation. This course has been designed to provide an intensive training in the relevant economic and legal concepts and techniques to equip you with the tools that will help you successfully design, implement and assess environmental policy in a variety of settings.

The aims of this course are: to enable students of a high calibre to pursue their education at an advanced applied level drawing on the primary disciplines of economics, planning and environmental policy, with additional specialisms in finance and law; to provide students with opportunities both to build on and develop material which they may have studied at undergraduate level as well as to broaden their knowledge base; to equip students with the necessary skills to pursue careers at a high level in a range of areas, including business and finance, civil service, public service, property professions, environmental agencies and organisations, national/international agencies and further study; to provide opportunities for education in a multidisciplinary environment so as to advance the understanding of cognate disciplines and their applications; to provide opportunities for learning with colleagues from different social, economic and legal systems; to provide students with appropriate skills and experience to enable them to use information and resources critically and to equip them with the means to undertake their own research and to provide an educational environment with a strong research ethos that brings together students from a wide variety of backgrounds and fosters an international approach to common problems.
