Course content

This programme is for graduates who wish to pursue a career in the environment sector in the UK or internationally, or those already working in the sector seeking to enhance their skills and employability. Graduates have an excellent track record of securing jobs in environmental consultancy, research and government agencies.

The unique emphasis of this programme is the practical challenge of measuring, analysing and evaluating dynamic environmental data for environmental problem-solving and management purposes. A key element of the programme is the dissertation, for which students undertake research relating to any special interests they have in environmental management.

Research expertise within the Department spans a wide range of environmental systems, including rivers, lakes, estuaries, deserts, coastal dunes and glaciers.
