Environmental Management, Environmental Management (Energy) or Environmental Management (Water Resources) Masters (MSc)

Course Description

Choose Kingston's Environmental Management MSc

The philosophy of the Environmental Management MSc programmes centres on the need for new environmental professionals: people with a strong cross-disciplinary understanding of the societal, economic, and environmental challenges posed by the emerging sustainable environmental management agenda. The course aims to provide you with the in-depth knowledge and the essential practical and evaluative skills needed to give leadership for low carbon, resource efficient, sustainable futures in diverse global contexts.

The final award title will reflect your chosen pathway:

Environmental Management MSc – this core pathway explores the rationale behind the exploitation of natural environments. It provides you with detailed knowledge and understanding of the important relationships between sustainable environmental management and natural ecosystems and the value of adopting an integrated approach to studying both.

Environmental Management (Energy) MSc – this pathway is timely, nationally and internationally relevant, given the world's energy needs, as well as the surrounding political debates regarding fossil fuels and increasingly, renewables, which form such an essential component of the world's existence.

Environmental Management (Water Resources) MSc – this pathway has a strong practical component. Our approach encourages you to critically assess geographically specific water management challenges through investigation and debate of UK, European and non-European examples, with specific emphasis on the relationship between water management and sustainable development.

With established and active links with European and American universities, the course ensures a globally relevant curriculum and produces graduates who are able to innovate and respond to new and emerging challenges within environmental management. The programme will provide you with a good basis for careers in local government, NGOs, major international companies, independent consultants, and in education (eg research and enterprise).
