The impact humans make on the environment has never been so significant, so pressing or so high profile. Governments, researchers and private organisations are still grappling with the potential solutions for global challenges. Our MSc Environmental Practice provides an answer. It's your chance to look beyond the headlines and explore the scientific, political and practical realities of protecting the environment.
As such, you'll cover a diverse range of units throughout the course. On one hand, you'll develop skills in assessing, monitoring and modelling pollution in the air, water and land, as well as measuring ecosystem degradation. On the other, you'll learn to apply environmental management tools, impact assessment procedures and carbon management methods.
Finally, you'll also learn about sustainable development principles and environmental policies - and how to evaluate their implementation. This mix of policy, practice and science will take you from the classroom to the field to the lab. While you'll develop desk-based assessment approaches, explore key concepts and analyse evidence in lectures and seminars, understanding the environment means getting out into the environment.
So, as well as various opportunities for field trips, you'll get out into the field for a residential course where you'll conduct an interdisciplinary environmental assessment. To help you develop your practical skills, you'll learn in an altogether more cutting-edge environment - with high-spec teaching and research labs equipped with state-of-art analytical and computing equipment.
