The world is currently facing the greatest environmental crisis of recent times: how to sustain over 7 billion people while maintaining a habitable environment. There is a need to manage the global environment in a more sustainable way and sustainable development must be underpinned by a thorough understanding of environmental issues and their interactions. Emphasising the integrated nature of the subject, this programme provides a solid foundation in environmental science, data collection and analysis, as well as the economic and social contexts in which environmental investigations operate.
This programme focuses on developing country issues, although the material is applicable to environmental studies worldwide, and draws on NRI's unrivalled pool of expertise in issues of sustainable development, climate and other environmental change, environmental data collection and analysis, bio security and ecological applications. The programme is focused around providing students with the key concepts needed to address these issues, learning from real case studies delivered by experts with experience of implementing environmental projects around the world.
Teaching and learning includes a variety of educational styles including seminars, lectures, group work, assignments and tutorials.
This programme provides specialist expertise for those working or wishing to work in aspects of environmental management, consultancy or research, or seeking an advanced environmental development/management qualification in the UK and overseas, allowing students to graduate with a broad general knowledge of environmental issues in sustainable development and also more focused in-depth knowledge of an area of specialisation.
