Course modules

Core units provide a common platform of underpinning skills and knowledge at master's level in the basics of water and environmental management. These units provide you with mathematics, computing and research skills, together with a firm understanding of fundamental processes that govern water movement through the atmosphere, atmosphere-biosphere interactions and water flows through river catchments. These units also explore how this fundamental understanding leads to environmental management, policy and legislation at local, national and international levels. Optional units provide specialist knowledge in a range of carefully chosen options, from which you will be able to select two units. Finally, you will complete a research-based dissertation.
