Environmental Management

This is a broad based and flexible course that enables students to pursue a range of environmental careers, from environmental specialist to a manager with an environmental remit. Alternatively the course, or modules within it, can provide valuable continuing professional development (CPD) should you be a professional wanting to refresh or expand your skills in environmental management. This can be done by taking the whole course or individual modules as stand-alone CPD items.

Entry requirements

Normally an Honours degree in an appropriate subject will be required, or a relevant professional qualification. Suitable degree subjects include biological sciences, geography, environmental science, natural resource management, forestry, geology/mining, agriculture, and business and management. Applicants from a range of backgrounds are welcomed and all previous experience and learning will be taken into consideration. Where appropriate Approved Prior Experience and Learning (APEL) can substitute for certain modules within the programme.

Course modules

Compulsory modules include: principles of environmental management; professional practice for environmental management; research project. Elective modules include: waste, energy and pollution management; environments and society: global perspectives on policy and practice; ecosystem management; applied geomorphology. Business management options also exist.

Assessment methods

Assessment is based on a strong emphasis on applying the skills students learn during their course to workplace scenarios. These include writing technical reports, presentations and the use of electronic media, such as developing a specialist wiki. There is no written examinations.
