Course summary

The devastation of the environment and ecosystems is of increasing concern across the world. In addition to the impact of climate change and reduced biodiversity, both legal and illegal economic activity is a challenge to legal frameworks and agencies at national and international levels of governance. This master's degree has been designed to tackle these issues and equip students with high-level knowledge and skills to enable them to develop professional careers in the environmental sector. Successful completion of the course will ensure you have the required practical skills and knowledge applicable to careers in environmental policy and enforcement, with an emphasis on employability and engagement with contemporary environmental debates. You will also have a number of opportunities to gain practical work experience through three different work placement modules offered as options through the programme. One of these enables you to apply to undertake an Erasmus-funded internship with an international organisation in an appropriate field based in another European country.

You will learn via a combination of lectures, seminars and workshops designed to facilitate discussion. Practitioners invited as guest speakers from leading environmental NGOs will provide practical perspectives and allow you to engage in contemporary debates and discuss real-world case scenarios. This programme is developed to provide you with the in-depth knowledge and practical skills to support your continual professional development and to further your employment and career prospects in the environmental policy and enforcement field. In particular, the course is suitable for those wishing to gain employment or achieve career progression within environmental NGOs, government environment agencies, local authority environment departments and environmental advocacy and policy organisations. The skills gained in the programme are suitable to career pathways in environmental investigations, environmental policy, environmental advocacy and environmental monitoring and environmental protection research.
