Course content

Protecting our finite planet in the face of infinite human ambition and economic growth requires a strategic approach to the environment.

Our MSc in Environmental Strategy is run by our Centre for Environment and Sustainability (CES) – a pioneering centre for inter-disciplinary environmental research and postgraduate teaching. Drawing upon the engineering, physical and social sciences, we’ll develop your technical and analytical skills to understand and resolve environmental problems.

This course will prepare you to join a new generation of environment and sustainability professionals ready to tackle the challenges ahead through the application of inter-disciplinary approaches, strategic thinking and analysis.

What you will study

This course will provide you with both theoretical and practical knowledge for evaluating the technical, social, economic and organisational elements of environmental problems.

You’ll be taught how to apply life-cycle assessment thinking and other analytical methods to understand how resources are used and how to manage materials and waste.

On this course, you’ll also learn about anticipating and responding to future policy developments and market pressures, enabling you to develop impressive problem-solving and decision-making skills.

The skills you’ll gain on our course are much sought after by environmental and consultancy employers. They can also provide you with a direct route to the Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment graduate membership, and the Institution of Environmental Sciences student membership.
