Course summary

About the course

The course is delivered at University Centre Myerscough and awarded by the University of Central Lancashire. This on-line MSc Arboriculture and Urban Forestry, awarded from the University of Central Lancashire, is a ground-breaking course with an international profile. The course recognises the multidisciplinary approach needed to design, maintain and manage trees as part of green infrastructure projects. The course is designed for professionals who wish to engage further with an understanding of urban trees, their management, and sustainable ways forward for our urban forests.

The course encourages debate and critical evaluation of practices and innovative research within arboriculture and urban forestry, taking both a scientific and industry viewpoint on current practice. We look at the current issues in delivering good tree care and healthy urban forests – because trees and urban green space contribute so much to the liveability of our urban areas and yet they are often neglected as a topic or seen only as a secondary resource in urban areas.

Importantly, the course requires its students to take a critical and evaluative stance on urban forestry, allowing them to develop further their skills and knowledge within this discipline and to be able to develop their professional opinion on key matters that affect trees in our townscapes. Academic standards on this course are high, such that MSc student research projects are frequently to a standard suitable for publication in relevant academic journals.

Learning Environment:

Learning activities on the course are diverse, including audio lectures, critical reviews of relevant academic papers, video presentations and a moderated discussion board as well as tutors’ notes and related publications.

Assessment:

Students will engage in a variety of relevant professional assessments, including the production of written reports, oral presentations and dissemination of information via webpages and research posters and writing an academic account of a research project.
