Course content

The Earth's resources are under strain from a growing population. Now, more than ever, we need to monitor, manage and maintain our environment. This vocationally relevant Masters provides you with an in-depth critical understanding of today’s major environmental challenges.

You can keep your learning broad or you can specialise in one of four areas:

Food Security
Energy
Pollution
Water
There are specific core modules for each specialist area.

Several modules include field trips to the beautiful and topographically varied countryside around Lancaster, and beyond.

All options include a dissertation project, which will enhance your practical and analytical skills and give you the chance to apply your learning to a real-world challenge. Our many research projects and partners across the globe provide exciting possibilities when you are choosing your dissertation subject. Alternatively you can do a six month research placement with a private sector company, government body or voluntary sector organisation instead of a traditional dissertation. Examples of previous dissertations include:

Using acoustic surveys to assess rainforest mammal communities
Plant productivity and nutrient use efficiency under diffuse solar radiation
The geopolitics of deep-sea mining
Urban deprivation and flood exposure in the Brazilian Amazon
Go Wild – How much carbon could we gain by re-wilding the uplands?
More crop per drop: does “little and often” improve crop water use efficiency
This very popular course will equip you to pursue a broad range of careers including environmental monitoring, resource management and consultancy.
