Course Summary

This course offers a broad curriculum studying the relationships between human and natural components of the environment alongside developing the capacity to implement measures for analysing and managing environmental impacts of organisations. Designed to produce graduates sufficiently equipped to play a leading role in the formulation, implementation and evaluation of environmental policy initiatives within the environmental industries, this course will enable you to develop essential knowledge and skills to progress into a professional career in environmental management, regulation or consultancy.

You will: Learn about existing and emerging challenges and explore contemporary management, technological and regulatory systems designed to reduce environmental risks; Study the areas of law, economics and the social and physical sciences which are of relevance to the theory and practice of environmental assessment and management; Learn authentic, experimental problem-based learning.

Each module is assessed individually through coursework including formative assignments, and assessed assignments. Formative assignments (FA) do not count towards the final award but you are strongly encouraged to do these as they will give you an opportunity to (i) apply subject-specific knowledge and skills, allowing review of your progress and understanding, (ii) highlight to tutors any difficulties relating to the study materials, and (iii) receive personal tutorial feedback on their work and any highlighted issues. Modular assignments may involve working with external stakeholder organisations on projects linked to managing environmental performance and/or environmental risk.

The course emphasises the development of professional skills and capabilities supplemented by practice-based learning opportunities. Your employability is developed through project work with external clients and through opportunities to work on a specific business problem for your dissertation. You will work in a team on a project with an external client organisation to develop your research and analytical skills and to enhance your employability profile. You are encouraged to undertake voluntary work for which assistance is provided. The programme has links with a range of volunteering organisations including the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds, the Groundwork organisations and the Bolton Community Development Partnership.
