Course content

Our master's in environmental management focuses on the practical skills required for successful and sustainable management through field, laboratory and analytical work.

The programme focuses on the dynamic nature of biological and physical environmental systems and teaches the practical and analytical techniques that science, government and industry increasingly need to assess and manage dynamic environmental systems. There is an emphasis on the practical challenge of measuring, analysing and evaluating dynamic environmental data for environmental problem solving and management purposes. It is formulated around our fundamental belief that environmental problem-solving and management must be based on asking the right questions, collecting the correct data, analysing it in an appropriate way and evaluating it in an applied context.

Geography and Environment is located inside a state-of-the-art research and teaching facility, complete with a river science laboratory, geospatial laboratory, and several meteorological and hydrological field stations. The campus also has a 16-hectare research forest, comprised of ancient and semi-natural woodland.

Who should study this programme?

Our MSc Environmental Monitoring, Research and Management is aimed at those wishing to pursue a career in the environment sector or those already working in industry who are seeking to enhance their skills and employability.
