Program Overview

Environmental managers use data about the environment, how it is changing, and predictions about how it will change in the future to make decisions about how best to manage human activities and their impacts on that environment. Throughout this course, our team of dedicated experts will guide you as you develop the knowledge and expertise to conduct and apply independent research during your environmental management career as you work to maximise human benefit and minimise environmental damage due to human activities.

Initially, you’ll focus on gaining core knowledge of the principles and practice of environmental management, a specialist area of your choice and research skills and methods. You’ll then develop your understanding by applying this knowledge during two work-based projects. Here, you’ll be expected to investigate a defined issue, develop solutions based on your findings and communicate your ideas effectively. We’ll support you as you learn to plan and implement your projects, collect data and critically analyse results.

We’ll encourage you to draw on these experiences and refine your skills as you prepare your dissertation. Focusing on an agreed problem relevant to environmental management, you’ll undertake an in-depth investigation, analyse your data and critically appraise your results. This major project will allow you to demonstrate your skills in research, critical thinking, communication and application of knowledge to solve specific problems in contemporary environmental management. Overall, we aim to help you gain the skills to examine corporate activities, establish where improvements can be made and how to make them, and successfully communicate your arguments for making those improvements to your organisation.
