M.Sc Environmental Management

Overview 

Learn how environmental systems function, and explore contemporary environmental management principles, tools, and legislation that we can use to address human impact on the environment.

You’ll review case studies and current practice to develop your knowledge of Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA), Environmental Management Systems (EMS) and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), in addition to key concepts such as the circular economy, corporate sustainability, resource management, environmental hazards, and ecosystem services.

You’ll develop key skills needed by professional environmental managers working in the field, including:

  • Geographical Information Systems (GIS)
  • Environmental risk, uncertainty and decision-making
  • Ecosystem, energy and waste management
  • Ecological survey and monitoring strategies
  • Environmental auditing
  • Data management and analyses
  • Human behaviour change
  • Change management
  • Reporting and public communication.

Course Structure 

Trimester one and two

We provide you with core knowledge and skills, in particular environmental systems and management tools, to work as an environmental professional instigating and managing change, data handling, and reporting.

You’ll study contemporary issues, and benefit from talks from specialists in the environmental industry.

Optional modules give you the opportunity to develop a greater depth of knowledge in several of these components, for example energy and waste management, ecosystem services and sustainability principles.

Trimester three

The third Trimester is devoted to your independent research project where you’ll work with your supervisor or a topic of particular interest to you. This might be a project working with an industry partner, and will allow you to demonstrate your environmental understanding in an area relevant to your interests and career, from biodiversity to business.

There can’t be many campuses that rival Newton Park. The parkland estate has everything you’d expect from a modern university, as well as a castle and a lake. All this and it's only four miles from the buzz of central Bath.

Job Opportunity Potential

We’ve got lots to share with you and to help we have split our work into three elements which will support you with:

  • Exploring your options
  • Gaining valuable experience
  • Progressing your ideas and career plans

At Bath Spa we believe you are continually exploring your options and experiencing different pathways to progression, but that this journey is not linear. It keeps on going throughout your time with us and when you leave. Some of our services cross all three areas and allow you to explore, experience and progress all in one, such as The Bath Spa Award.

We encourage you to read resources and attend events across all stages of Explore, Experience and Progress as they will offer beneficial insight and development opportunities regardless of the current stage you are at in your career journey.
