Broaden your understanding of environmental issues in the context of your own background and qualifications. Gain a deeper understanding of environmental legislation and regulation and the inter-disciplinary nature of the environmental issues.
The programme is designed to give a deeper understanding of the inter-relationships between the environment and topics such as energy technology, environmental law, business strategies, policy and other areas. It focuses on environmental auditing, assessment and management procedures, as required by industrial and commercial bodies. Thus the programme emphasises the application of environmental knowledge, but pressures on the wider global environment are also studied. Furthermore, in order that students can better understand these applications, the basic principles of the various disciplines are also covered. The programme has a standard modular structure and a wide variety of teaching and assessment procedures are used.
Why Choose This Programme?
With increasing environmental legislation and regulation, commercial and industrial organisations, local authorities and public bodies, all require some environmental input to their activities. The environment offers opportunities to those who understand the issues involved and have a vision broad enough to grasp their inter-disciplinary nature. Thus, the programme offers students the challenge to broaden their understanding of environmental issues in the context of their previous backgrounds and qualifications.
