Ecosystems have declined more rapidly and extensively over the past 50 years than during any other comparable time in human history. At the same time the world population is projected to rise to nine billion by 2050 and such an increase may inevitably lead to an increased degradation of the natural environment and the ecosystem services which it provides.
The overarching global concerns of climate change, loss of biodiversity and ecosystem services, food security and poverty alleviation need to be encompassed in management strategies which require a multi-disciplinary approach. This course seeks to provide training for those working in or seeking to work in the landscape and environmental management sector: The cross discipline nature of the course with an emphasis on environmental sustainability and human well-being reflects current national and international thinking.
The clear directive is to prepare the next generation of postgraduate students with the appropriate knowledge and skills to operate effectively in a multidisciplinary working environment. This new course will embrace the principles and values presented in both global and national policy and guidelines and takes on board the concept of “think globally, act locally”.
Upon successful completion of this course, graduates will be able to go into positions such as a Land Management and Planning Officer, Biosphere Development Officer, Community Projects Officer, Environmental Consultant, Environmental Design and Planning, Land Use Policy Officer, Green Infrastructure/Open Spaces Strategy Manager, Sustainability Education Officer or Land Management Consultant
Brilliant international lecturers and expert practitioners make any course actual and vibrant, enhancing my future employability prospects.
Having studied at Writtle for my BSc (Hons) Landscape and Garden Design, I knew the campus well and the level of deliverance was going to be to a high standard.
Having spent 5 years at Writtle University College, Writtle can be thanked for development of me professionally and socially, for which I will always be thankful.
There are a number of different elements that I enjoyed about the course, but due to being postgraduate level it meant that we were responsible for our own learning, of which was enhanced by the fact that the assignments were either working alongside real time projects and companies and/or they were left to decide our chosen case study.
An undergraduate honours degree at 2.2 or above in one of the following subject areas: conservation, horticulture, agricultural, environmental science, landscape design or management, biology, ecology, geography, or a related discipline in an environmental subject.
