Course summary

Programme

This programme provides fundamental and applied training in environmental science and environmental management, with a focus on water. Be a part of developing interdisciplinary solutions to priority water resource and catchment issues, working in close collaboration with our advisory board of representatives from the water industry.

  • Combine hydrology, applied geomorphology, biogeochemistry and ecology in this interdisciplinary masters degree in environmental management
  • Develop a core understanding of environmental science, environmental management systems and the key policy and legal frameworks that underpin them
  • Gain insights into water and environmental management including floodplain management, fluvial systems, catchement science and catchment management
  • Engage in fieldwork at our research sites ranging from globally rare chalk streams to heavily impacted rivers within London and southern England

What you'll study

You will have the opportunity to network within the water and environmental sectors, meeting experts with experience of working in a wide variety of public- and private-sector organisations such as AECOM, Atkins Global, Defra, Environment Agency, Natural England and National Trust.

You will be able to develop transferable skills in field and lab methods, project management, statistical analysis, geographical information systems (GIS) and the use of remotely sensed data, report writing, problem solving and presenting. We offer hands-on training in flood estimation and inundation modelling using industry-standard software, as well as river assessment methods.

You will be able to develop skills and knowledge in the monitoring and management of pollutants, nutrient levels and greenhouse gas emissions in aquatic systems and in the theory and practice of river restoration.

You will receive tailored research supervision and training suitable to your individual research interests in order to complete your individual research project. This will usually be completed in collaboration with a partner organisation.
