Environmental Science and Management

The course offers a wide choice of optional modules which allows students to structure their degrees according to their own specific interests in environmental science, ecology and conservation and environmental policy and economics; through its emphasis on research, environmental assessment methods, and the application of critical thinking to specific case studies, the course equips students to analyse and tackle the complex, multi-faceted problems that characterise environmental management; great emphasis is placed on problem solving, particularly on issues currently being investigated by research staff within the Environment Department and the Stockholm Environmental Institute at York. We also offer a Diploma and a Postgraduate Certificate.
