Course summary

Overview

We live in a dynamic world where the impact of human activity on the environment and society is now recognised as needing urgent attention. In 2015 the UN launched its 17 Sustainable Development Goals which have quickly become adopted as the framework by which nations and organisations are measuring their progress.

Demand for sustainability practitioners is growing and is likely to continue to grow. This course aims to equip you with a range of knowledge, skills and experience integral to the sustainability and environmental professional.

The MSc in Sustainability and Environmental Management course offered at Coventry University is designed to reflect the needs of the profession as well as the research interests and commercial background of current lecturing staff. As such, it is evolving to try to meet the needs of this important discipline.

The course focuses on the environmental, technological, political and social issues associated with environmental management and sustainability issues that face organisations.
