Course content

The world is facing increasing environmental threats which are posing severe scientific, social and economic challenges to the human race. These challenges include: the depletion of natural resources, the loss of diversity and the need to develop new forms of energy generation whilst efficiently utilising existing energy sources.

Tackling these environmental problems and establishing a sustainable environment requires the adoption of appropriate policies and managerial strategies. The interdisciplinary nature of this postgraduate course provides a broad understanding of these environmental problems whilst embedding the appropriate specialist scientific, managerial and generic skills for a career in the environmental sustainability sector.

The course incorporates Keele University’s internationally recognised expertise in research and teaching on environmental issues. It is taught by a team of environmental specialists working in the fields of environmental technologies, biological sciences, chemical science, project management, and environmental policy and politics.
