Course content

Responsible management of water and environmental resources is essential in tackling the climate emergency. This accredited Water and Environmental Management MSc is an opportunity to develop and enhance core skills, to explore key analytical and scientific skills, and gain up-to-date knowledge of national and international environmental legislation.

Students study principles of governing disease control through sustainable water treatment technology in developing countries, explore wastewater treatment theory and practice and evaluate treatment processes. Case studies carried out through fieldwork investigate environmental water sampling and analysis.

Students learn with and work alongside members of the research Centre for Aquatic Environments who aim to protect the environment and to support the diverse range of social and cultural values and benefits that derive from healthy aquatic ecosystems.

Brighton researchers collaborate with global organisations and charities such as UNICEF, the World Health Organisation and Water Aid, and work in partnership with regional and national organisations including National Trust, Environment Agency and Southern Water.

The university's well-established links with industry provide networking opportunities and shared insight through guest lectures.
