Course Summary

This course is ideal for anyone who values the socio-economic environment and wishes to contribute to the achievement of sustainable development. On this MSc course you’ll explore why and how we use environmental assessment, the consequences of good and bad practice and what different stakeholders expect from it. You’ll learn to connect the environmental process with the operational stages of development by examining environmental management plans to ensure the findings are implemented. And you’ll experience the challenges associated with developing and applying practical skills by conducting fieldwork in all weathers, interviewing members of the public, presenting findings in front of your peers, and writing environmental management plans allocating responsibilities and timings. Whether your background is earth sciences, or social sciences, the course is still relevant. There are no specific prerequisites as the focus is on understanding and improving environmental assessment through the core modules, and a wide range of optional modules that offer additional employability skills associated with specific impact prediction practice. This course is accredited by the Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment (IEMA) – the professional body for careers in this field.
