Course Summary

Gain expertise in sustainable development from the Natural Resources Institute with an MSc by Research in Natural Resources.

This research master's in natural resources is for graduates and professionals looking for greater knowledge and expertise in natural resources and sustainable development. With a better understanding of our planet's natural resources, you'll explore how to meet developmental needs without placing unsustainable demands on the environment. The emphasis is on tropical applications, which is a specialist area for the Natural Resources Institute, but the approaches are generic and may be applied globally.

This MSc consists of a selection of taught courses (from our MSc Global Environmental Change and MSc Agriculture for Sustainable Development) plus an extended research project which enables you to focus on an aspect relevant to your interests. The programme provides awareness of natural resources, their management and sustainable development. You'll also understand how to apply the principles of sustainable natural resource management to your own discipline.
