You’ll develop knowledge, critical analysis and skills in Environmental Science, and learn about its application to the management of natural resources. You will be prepared for a wide range of careers in environmental consultancy and business, in government and non-governmental organisations and in environmental research.

You’ll take part in problem solving especially in issues that are at the forefront of our research. You will also examine case-studies that allow you to analyse and tackle the complex problems that characterise Environmental Management.

You can pick from a variety of optional modules that will allow you to structure this course to your own interests. You’ll also be able to chose to do your dissertation work within our department, with the Stockholm Environmental Institute at York (SEIY) or with another appropriate institution or organisation
