Developing skills for wide-ranging applications

The MSc Environmental Management is an opportunity to study a professionally focused course in line with your own interests and ambitions. On completion, you'll be ready to take on a number of roles, for example, working in the environmental arm of a large private company, or with a public sector body such as the Environment Agency. You'll find possibilities across the world in areas as diverse as civil engineering, sustainable development, water security, or research. You may find yourself developing policy or getting involved in major projects.

Be at the forefront of helping solve some of the world's biggest environmental and sustainability issues, including climate change, air pollution, biodiversity loss, food and water security, sanitation and safe water access. Your expertise could help shape the future of our planet, and really make a difference.

The Masters in Environmental Management has been designed to create a well-rounded environmental management professional that is able to apply their skills holistically in developing solutions to address the major challenges of our global future.

Your degree will provide you with skillsets and expertise in managing water, air, carbon and energy, alongside a grounding in environmental assessment, sustainable development and Geographical Information Systems (GIS) that will enhance the applicability of your knowledge. In addition, the course gives you the opportunity to put your learning into practice in a workplace setting through undertaking a project on behalf of an organisation of your choosing, helping you to get a foothold in your environmental management career and increasing your subsequent employability.

You will also have an opportunity to apply your knowledge and skills through your choice of Masters Project. This could allow you to specialise in an aspect of environment management that interests you, or expand on and develop your work-based learning project.
