The Sustainability and Consultancy Masters offers a grounding in the broad range of sustainability topics beyond just environmental issues (from project development to corporate sustainability strategy). It will also develop the professional skills you’ll need.
Sustainability is an integrated issue across our teaching, rather than separating the environmental, economic and social elements.
Specialist modules are delivered by academic staff, practising consultants and other practitioners, giving you exposure to real-life, international case studies with a good understanding of contemporary management techniques and solutions.
This course aligns closely with the challenges of sustainability and the skills that employers say they need to tackle those challenges, with a strong emphasis on project skills.
Our course was the first qualification of its kind in the UK.
In the first semester you can choose an optional free 2 day field course to East Yorkshire. Learn about issues affecting sustainable economic development and environmental management in a developed world context.
A major component of this Masters is that you will manage a consultancy project, which is usually in the form of a placement with a professional organisation. This experience plays a key role in your personal and professional development.
