University of Gloucestershire
This interdisciplinary course seeks to equip students with the essential skills for negotiating change towards a more sustainable society, in particular society�s relationship with environmental issues and resources; this is a course for those who want to investigate what sustainability means in practice, and the strategic changes required in order to achieve this in complex real-world settings; the focus of the course is on enabling students to acquire the knowledge and skills to practice sustainability in inspirational and transformational ways within organisations, communities and institutions.
Students would typically have at least a 2.2 degree and some relevant work experience; mature students with substantial relevant work experience would be considered without a degree qualification; there are no specific subject requirements for entry, but qualifications or experience in areas such as geography, biology, earth or environmental science, or planning would be most suitable.
Modules include: Understanding sustainable environments; applied ecology and conservation; climate change: mitigation and adaptation; geographic information systems: mapping and remote sensing; sustainable food, food security and society; environmental assessment: environmental investigation agency (EIA), systems engineering and assessment (SEA), and ecosystem services.
Assessment is based on coursework, which ranges from consultancy reports, academic essays, individual portfolios, project plans, reflective food diary and critical assessments of decision-making approaches; there are assessed formal presentations both of students own work and as a review of someone else�s work; there are no exams.
