Course content

The MSc Environmental Consultancy was launched in 2020 in response to student demands for a degree that focused directly on preparing them for a career in environmental consultancy. Social, technological and environmental change is forcing an urgent global reassessment of the way we live, how we consume the planet's resources, and how we best respond to changes driven by climate, globalisation, conflict and demographic change. In turn, this has led to a growth in demand for well-qualified environmental managers who are able to work within large organisations such as construction companies, and within consultancies advising on environmental challenges and opportunities.

Through the interdisciplinary MSc Environmental Consultancy degree course you can explore a diverse range of subject areas to meet the environmental sector's calls for graduates with a wide ranging skills set. The ability to have a professional outlook supported by a broad yet advanced understanding of the environment is the focus of this masters course which aims to develop the interdisciplinary environmental skills and knowledge required for a career in this exciting and fast-growing industry.
