Course summary

Our MSc Environmental Management provides a solid grounding in the scientific principles behind environmental management issues.

Participate in world-leading fieldwork research projects, and take advantage of outstanding teaching collections and facilities housed in modern premises.

You will benefit from our custom-designed building with specialised research facilities, including laboratories and instrumentation for work in molecular ecology and biochemistry, environmental chemistry, physics and stable and radioisotopes. You will have access to superb controlled environment facilities, a large area of experimental polytunnels and glasshouses and extensive opportunities for fieldwork at our experimental farms.

You can take an optional Research and Enterprise Micro-Placement, during which you will be placed with a member of staff on an externally-funded project based in the UK or internationally, or with an environmental consultancy or government organisation to gain experience of working within an external commercial environment.

The programme has three pathways:

  • Contaminated and Urban Environments
  • The Changing Environment
  • Agriculture and Rural Environments

Contaminated and Urban Environments is intended for students interested in environmental pollution.

The Changing Environment is intended for students interested in the mitigation and adaptation of ecosystems and society to climate change.

WHAT CAREER CAN YOU HAVE?

After completing this course you will be ideally placed to work in government agencies (e.g. DEFRA, Environment Agency), environmental consultancies, waste management companies, water companies, agricultural consultants and firms with in-house roles covering sustainability and implementing environmental law. A proportion of graduates also go on to further study through funded PhD projects.
