Understanding the development and functioning of environmental law across different levels of environmental governance is an important issue of our time. Read more
Understanding the development and functioning of environmental law across different levels of environmental governance is an important issue of our time. This requires moving beyond the traditional approach to teaching international, regional, EU and national environmental law in isolation from one other.

There's also a growing need to understand the relevance for environmental governance of the legal practices of indigenous peoples and local communities, business entities, local administrations, and transnational environmental practitioners.

The programme aims to help students critically appraise and creatively contribute to environmental regulation and governance at the international, transnational, national and local levels.

Studying this course, you'll be equipped with a wide range of expertise in environmental law, in areas like:
-Biodiversity
-Land
-Food and agriculture
-Climate change and energy
-Corporate accountability
-Environmental justice
-Water and oceans
-Human rights
-Sustainable development

You'll focus on the global dynamics of environmental law. In particular, you'll look at the mutual influences and interactions among different regulatory levels.

The programme draws both on cutting-edge academic research on global environmental law, and on first-hand professional experience in environmental law and governance at different levels.

Employability

Your ability to gain international employment is at the heart of this course. It'll equip you with the skills and expertise you need to pursue a career in:
-International organisations
-National governments involved in international, EU and/or transnational law matters

-Private companies concerned with international, EU and/or transnational environmental law

Curriculum Structure

https://mba.wharton.upenn.edu/curriculum-structure/

Wharton’s MBA curriculum offers depth, breadth, and options. The curriculum emphasizes an intensive, flexible core in general management, plus the depth of 19 majors and breadth of more than 200 electives.

You will customize your learning by selecting a course pathway through content areas based on your education, career experience, and goals — not just through selection of your electives and majors, but through choices in the core.

- Core
Offered as quarter- or semester-long courses, the core curriculum covers traditional management disciplines- with an emphasis on analytical rigor — accounting, finance, marketing, management, operations, statistics, and microeconomics — as well as the leadership, ethics, and communication skills necessary for leadership. This series of courses provides a rigorous grounding for the individualized coursework that follows.

Wharton’s core includes 9.5 credit units, distributed in two parts:
- Fixed Core: 3.25 credit units fixed in the first semester
- Flexible Core: 6.25 credit units in the first semester or anytime thereafter

- Elective Curriculum
Wharton’s elective curriculum, 10 credit units, provides depth and breadth across traditional and nontraditional areas of management education.

- Majors: Choose from 19 majors.
- Electives: Choose among 200+ electives across 10 academic departments, or take courses in others of Penn’s 11 world-leading schools.

Pre-term

Your Wharton MBA begins with Pre-Term. With a three-week immersion, Pre-Term sets you up for a strong academic experience and ensures that everyone in your diverse incoming class begins from a common knowledge base. Pre-Term also provides the platform upon which you will develop your curriculum plan while bonding with new classmates and building your own sense of community and school pride.

Pre-Term is required. It includes coursework, a Learning Team experience, and the chance to explore Philadelphia and build relationships with your cluster and other classmates.

You will be introduced to your Learning Team at a Learning Team Retreat in an environment free of distraction. This initiates the process of strong team formation. The Teams complete the Management 610: Foundations of Teamwork and Leadership course, and continue the collaboration throughout the fixed core.

Other elements of Pre-Term include MBA Convocation, International Student Orientation, and an Accelerated Corporate Finance Prep Course for students who need it.

Year One

The first year is intense. You will begin by moving through key courses with your learning team — a group of five or six classmates with whom you will work closely on projects. Then, you’ll select from many options as you branch out in the second half of First Year and beyond. You’ll have a choice of content areas for some core courses and will start to pick your electives. In addition, you will become involved in co-curricular and extracurricular activities that tie into the courses you choose.

Year Two

You will take any remaining core requirements, drill deeper within the wide range of electives, and develop one or more areas of expertise. For customized interests, students often partner with faculty and businesses on individual advanced student projects.

Your study experience is highly personal, whether online or face-to-face. Wherever you are living or working during your studies, you are part of an integrated, international cohort of MBA students who network, share experiences and support each other in a collaborative environment.

We are more interested in you and your personal and intellectual development than where you are ranked amongst your peers in terms of ability and achievement. This approach is embedded in our teaching, learning and assessment on the MBA programmes.

Lectures and discussions, role-play exercises, learning packages and seminars are linked with selected case studies and assignments to strengthen your practical analysis and decision-making skills.

We focus on your career and professional development, with an emphasis on management in practice, will enable you to take the next steps in your career, confident in your own knowledge and abilities.

We educate our students in 'the art and craft of management', equipping you to manage organisations, not simply learn management theory. Our focus is on individual development through collaboration and sharing of best practice.

We offer individual personal and career development guidance alongside a variety of activities which help you acquire the knowledge and skills required to lead and manage.

The Personal and Professional Development module focuses on your career and professional development and is embedded throughout the programme. This important module starts at your induction and culminates with an assessment of your Summative Reflective Action Plan at the end of your programme, which gives you a personal plan to guide you through your future career.

How you use your MBA, your progress and your future career are important elements within the Action Plan. It also helps you to make the most of your learning and development so you benefit from the MBA while studying as well as once you graduate.

Reflective assignments and coaching and leadership challenges provide you with the practical experience to develop your critical thinking skills and leadership capability. At MBA Community events, industry visits and the MBA Summer School you have opportunities to soak up knowledge from industry experts and network with executives.

Careers

We make sure you are well supported for your future career during your MBA programme. As well as the Personal and Professional Development Module, which helps you develop and action plan to guide you through your career, you’ll benefit from our links with industry and working with companies on live commercial projects.

The programme has the following exit awards:

- MSc Research in Health Practice (three years)

Overview

The Professional Doctorate in Health is designed for a range of health and social care professionals who are interested in furthering their development as expert practitioners and researchers in practice.

By utilising web-based delivery blended with Summer Schools (typically five days in length), the programme aims to meet the learning needs of busy health and social care practitioners.

During the first two years of study you will complete a series of units covering research methods, evidence based practice, comparative health policy and other topics relevant to research in practice. Throughout the first two years you will also be developing a protocol for your doctoral research project. Unlike the PhD programme, we do not expect you to have a well-developed research protocol before commencing your studies. Your Personal Development Adviser (PDA) will work with you to develop your research plans, before handing over to an academic and practice-based supervisor during the second year.

Programme features:
- Carry out independent research and understand research methods whilst remaining in your practice area.
- Choose your learning style within a flexible environment amongst a multi-professional community.
- Expand your understanding of policy and practice in the context of international healthcare systems and service.

Time required for study:
We recognise that many of our students are in demanding full-time health or social care jobs and the Professional Doctorate in Health programme is designed to be flexible and supportive in order to accommodate these demands. However, you will need to be able to commit at least 15 hours per-week (on average) to your studies, either through study leave or by working during evenings, weekends and holidays.

Transfer to the PhD programme:
If who wish to exit with a PhD (Doctor of Philosophy) award, rather than the DHealth (Professional Doctorate in Health) award, then you may apply to do so at the end of the first or second year of study, while retaining the flexible mode of delivery and supervision designed for the Professional Doctorate in Health programme.

Year one:
- Research project preparation and planning
- Introduction to practice based research
- Research design and methods
- Evidence into practice

Learning and teaching

Teaching takes the form of online units, which include resource libraries, access to all of the online journals (held by the University of Bath Library), and a structured series of activities and online discussion boards.

All resources can be accessed through ‘PD Online’ - our bespoke virtual learning environment. You will also be able to submit your assignments on PD Online and communicate directly with staff and your fellow students.

A Summer School is held once a year at the University (most often in September). You will attend one Summer School/Induction during your first year and one Summer School at the beginning of the second year.

Your tutor will provide support for your assignment preparation, as well as learning needs analysis and personal development planning.

The ‘research and thesis’ phase will be supervised by a panel of specialists; comprising a University academic member of staff (to ensure that the work is of a sufficient standard), and a practice-based specialist (to ensure that the work is at the forefront of practice).

Methods of assessment

Assessment consists of a combination of written assignments, literature reviews, research protocols and reflective accounts. There are no written examinations.

You will also produce a portfolio of evidence of application to practice, and have to undertake a face-to-face transfer interview and a final viva.

Overview

Cancer is a subject which embraces an ever-widening range of disciplines. The degree of Master of Science in Oncology is suitable both for scientists and other graduates who wish to learn more about the science as well as the practice of oncology, and for clinicians together with other health care professionals who require further training in the molecular aspects of oncology.

Course aims

The course aims to:

- provide formal training for basic scientists and clinicians in the theoretical and practical aspects of the causes and treatment of cancer
- through the project and dissertation, familiarise you with the research environment, and enable you to develop the skills necessary to undertake independent research

The MSc Oncology draws on a unique blend of clinical and scientific expertise and experience, and benefits from strong ties that exist between the clinic and laboratory within the Division of Oncology.

Two thirds of the course are taught with the remaining third being a research component. Laboratory research is compulsory for full time students.

Key facts

- The course has been running since 1997, and continues to provide up-to-date knowledge and training to its students.
- The course partly fulfils the syllabus requirements for clinicians studying to sit Part 1 FRCR exams. The syllabus also meets the curriculum requirements for Higher Specialist Training in Medical Oncology set out by the Joint Committee on Higher Medical Training. CME Credits are also available.
- The latest Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) confirmed The University of Nottingham's position as a world class research-led institution. Over 60 per cent of the University's RAE scores identified research as being of a level of international excellence
- This achievement has helped put Nottingham in the world’s top 75 universities according to The Newsweek World University Rankings
- The research carried out within Oncology is recognised at an international level

Student Opinions

"Overall very interesting and provides a solid background into the development, causes and treatment of cancer. A good stepping stone into further research and provides a good knowledge of cancer and general biology. I personally feel far more confident going into a PhD having done the course."

"Very worthwhile to have more lecture material on cancer and lab/research experience before starting a PhD. I probably wouldn't have got the PhD of my dreams if it wasn't for this course."

"Overall, the MSc in Oncology has been extremely interesting, incorporating many aspects within the field, all of which were relevant to the course from a scientific and clinical point of view."

"Individual lecturers/modules have been fantastic. The staff are enthusiastic, approachable and encourage asking questions. The research project has been very useful in terms of learning techniques and getting the chance to manage your own piece of mini research. The personal tutor system is good for career advice and general support through the course."

"The course is well organised, teaching materials are well provided and useful. Students are taken care of and the hospital visits are excellent."

Learning and teaching

Our programmes are modular, consisting of self-contained units, taught and assessed on a semester basis. As you progress through each semester and successfully pass the examinations, you will receive credit for the units, thus providing you with a clear indication of your academic progress.

The majority of the content of the programme is delivered online to allow you to engage in flexible study alongside your clinical practice. To complement the online teaching there is a face-to-face induction event at the University and residential teaching weeks in the first and second years of the programme. Reflective, practice-based elements are provided through professional experiential learning and online virtual workshops.

Methods of assessment

You will be assessed through written assignments and case studies, a portfolio of clinical experience, the OSCE Examination and a Dissertation. Each unit is assessed individually.

Assignments are delivered online and must also be submitted online. The formative assessment includes moderated online discussions, self-assessment questions and online multiple choice tests.

Summative assessment will vary between units but will typically include some of the following:

Compilation of portfolio of evidence [SEM in Practice]
OSCE examination [SEM in Practice]
Maintaining a reflective practitioner portfolio [SEM in Practice]
Essays
Case studies
Short answer questions
Recorded consultations

- Accreditation of Prior Learning (APL):
If you have a previous qualification, or undertaken postgraduate units from another institution, you may be eligible to transfer credit for this prior learning.

Depending on the programme of study, you can gain APL for up to 50% of the total credits required (this credit must have been obtained within the previous five years).

- Accreditation of Prior Experiential Learning (APEL)
You may also apply for APEL by submitting a portfolio of evidence, demonstrating that you have successfully achieved the learning outcomes for the specific unit(s) you seek exemption from.

We recommend you discuss this with the Director of Studies first to ensure this is suitable, as creating your portfolio can be very time consuming.

We will not permit exemptions of fractional units, and so the minimum threshold for the applications of APEL procedures will be a single, free standing unit (including three credit units). The maximum threshold for exemption will normally be 50% of the total credits required for a programme of study, for example, a 45-credit exemption towards a 90-credit Masters degree.

About the department

The School for Health was established within the University of Bath in 2003, to centralise the high profile research and teaching in the health-related disciplines already taking place throughout the university, so creating a single entity through which links with the health sector at national and international level can be channelled, co-ordinated and developed.

In 2010 the School joined the Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences and became the Department for Health, providing excellent opportunities for academic teaching and research collaborations with other departments, such as Psychology and Social & Policy Sciences. The Department's postgraduate teaching and research programmes now form part of the Faculty's new Graduate School, also launched in 2010, providing postgraduate students with dedicated support and a strong community in which to base their studies - whether on campus or by distance learning.

In keeping with government initiatives surrounding population health and more general public concerns, the Department divides its activities between two main pillars: Healthcare and Population Health – one focuses on the NHS, healthcare and health services research and the other focuses on population health, healthy living, sport & physical activity and tobacco control; each of these groups, in turn, contain both teaching programmes and research activities. Furthermore, there is a bridging spine between both pillars and which houses the Professional Doctorate in Health, Research in Health Practice and the administrative, finance, learning & teaching development, marketing and support activities of the Department.

The Department’s aims are:

- To develop a research portfolio that is both of the highest academic standard and has applications in the real world
- To build on external links with the public services and other bodies concerned with health and society
- To innovate design and delivery of healthcare services
- To change corporate approaches to healthy organisations
- To support government reform of health and social care provision
- To identify and facilitate opportunities for academic collaboration and new developments.

The Department's postgraduate taught programmes combine academic excellence with flexible and innovative design and delivery; our postgraduate portfolio is distinguished by the provision of a number of Professional Masters and a Professional Doctorate programme designed to be studied part-time by learners working in a wide range of healthcare roles from all around the world. All our postgraduate courses are taught online and this has proved to be one of our unique selling points, with students able to continue within their practice area or working environment whilst gaining a further qualification.

The Department is renowned for its exemplary attention to educational design, integrating knowledge with research evidence and resulting in programmes which are highly relevant to contemporary practice; in addition, the Department boasts some of the most innovative and successful approaches to online and part-time education, recognised through a number of awards.

At all levels, learning and teaching in the Department provides a strong focus on high quality education for real world situations and produces graduates with skills and knowledge relevant to professional roles and in high demand from employers.

- Part-time MSc (3-5 years)

This programme can also form part of the Professional Doctorate in Health.

Overview

Research in Health Practice is a modular postgraduate programme which has been designed to meet the professional needs of a range of health and social care practitioners who are interested in developing their skills as researchers in practice.

This flexible programme enables you to build knowledge and skills in designing and conducting programmes of research. Most appealing is the online aspect, meaning that you can remain within the practice area whilst gaining an all-important Masters level qualification (helping you progress to specialist practitioner or consultant level within the NHS).

The programme provides an innovative and integrated blend of knowledge-based, activity-based and experiential learning, underpinned by self-reflection and peer review. A virtual learning environment will form the focus for organising the learning, providing a platform for discussion and sharing of ideas.

By utilising web-based delivery blended with Summer Schools (typically five days in length), the programme aims to meet the learning needs of busy health and social care practitioners. Learning is supported throughout the programme by a Personal Development Adviser (PDA) who will utilise learning needs analysis and personal development planning techniques to provide motivation.

Learning and teaching

Our programmes are modular, consisting of self-contained units, taught and assessed on a semester basis. As you progress through each semester and successfully pass the examinations, you will receive credit for the units, thus providing you with a clear indication of your academic progress.

The majority of the content of the programme is delivered online to allow you to engage in flexible study, alongside your clinical practice. To complement the online resources, there are face-to-face teaching events at various stages of the programme.

Methods of assessment

Assessment consists of a combination of written assignments, literature reviews, research protocols and reflective accounts.

Accreditation of Prior Learning (APL):
If you have studied, but not completed or received an award, for postgraduate units from another institution, you may be eligible to transfer credit for this prior learning.

Depending on the programme of study, you can gain APL for up to 50% of the total credits required (this credit must have been obtained within the previous five years).

About the department

In keeping with government initiatives surrounding population health and more general public concerns, the Department divides its activities between two main pillars: Healthcare and Population Health – one focuses on the NHS, healthcare and health services research and the other focuses on population health, healthy living, sport & physical activity and tobacco control; each of these groups, in turn, contain both teaching programmes and research activities. Furthermore, there is a bridging spine between both pillars and which houses the Professional Doctorate in Health, Research in Health Practice and the administrative, finance, learning & teaching development, marketing and support activities of the Department.

The Department’s aims are:

- To develop a research portfolio that is both of the highest academic standard and has applications in the real world
- To build on external links with the public services and other bodies concerned with health and society
- To innovate design and delivery of healthcare services
- To change corporate approaches to healthy organisations
- To support government reform of health and social care provision
- To identify and facilitate opportunities for academic collaboration and new developments.

The Department's postgraduate taught programmes combine academic excellence with flexible and innovative design and delivery; our postgraduate portfolio is distinguished by the provision of a number of Professional Masters and a Professional Doctorate programme designed to be studied part-time by learners working in a wide range of healthcare roles from all around the world. All our postgraduate courses are taught online and this has proved to be one of our unique selling points, with students able to continue within their practice area or working environment whilst gaining a further qualification.

The Department is renowned for its exemplary attention to educational design, integrating knowledge with research evidence and resulting in programmes which are highly relevant to contemporary practice; in addition, the Department boasts some of the most innovative and successful approaches to online and part-time education, recognised through a number of awards.

About the department

The School for Health was established within the University of Bath in 2003, to centralise the high profile research and teaching in the health-related disciplines already taking place throughout the university, so creating a single entity through which links with the health sector at national and international level can be channelled, co-ordinated and developed.

In 2010 the School joined the Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences and became the Department for Health, providing excellent opportunities for academic teaching and research collaborations with other departments, such as Psychology and Social & Policy Sciences. The Department's postgraduate teaching and research programmes now form part of the Faculty's new Graduate School, also launched in 2010, providing postgraduate students with dedicated support and a strong community in which to base their studies - whether on campus or by distance learning.
