Course content

Society is increasingly sensitive to anthropogenic effects on the natural environment and the public perception is that we do not always weigh the benefits of activities against the associated environmental cost. Such themes are significant within environmental conservation and management.

The disciplines here help deal with many challenges facing our planet, country and locality which are central to the future of society.

The MSc Environmental Conservation and Management has for many years offered programmes designed to develop and prepare students for a career in the environmental sector.

The University led the way by becoming the first university to offer an Environmental Conservation degree in 1998. There continues to be a societal and political demand for the sustainable management of our environment and natural resources.

This MSc programme will develop your abilities to address the competing needs of society, the economy and the environment in a practical and holistic way, supported by geographical and academic knowledge.

The programme is divided into two parts; you will complete a series of taught modules followed by an independent research-based dissertation in a subject area of your choice. The taught modules will provide you with the employer-focused legal, technical and managerial abilities, which are required in the sector.
