Environmental Protection and Management

This programme will give you a fundamental understanding of the issues affecting the Earth enabling you to play a vital role in devising and enacting strategies to protect and conserve the environment, both in Europe and beyond. Human activities are recognised as having an increasingly significant effect on the Earth's biosphere.

On this programme you will learn about the issues that face the Earth and gain an in-depth understanding of natural resource management and the processes that give rise to environmental degradation and pollution problems. It will allow you to play a vital role in planning and putting into action strategies to protect and conserve the environment. This programme is run in collaboration with Scotland's Rural College (SRUC). This programme is affiliated with the University's Global Environment & Society Academy.
