How does human activity affect our planet? How can these effects be managed?
This course develops your understanding of environmental problems at a master’s level and gives you the skills to analyse and develop long-term solutions. You’ll be able to oversee environmental performance in the private, public and voluntary sector, ensuring that improvements are made where possible and legislation is followed. This course looks to raise your ability to understand and analyse environmental problems, in order to develop long-term solutions.
You can choose to take the course with or without a work placement. Both options are accredited by the Institution of Environmental Sciences (IES) and the Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management (CIWEM).
If you opt for the placement route, you’ll have the opportunity to work on various projects and graduate with hands-on professional experience - something that'll make you stand out when you embark on your career. At Brunel, we have excellent links with many organisations through our research activities, so you can be assured of a high-quality placement at a relevant organisation. Opportunities for our master's students include placements at The Environment Agency and international placements at the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) and with the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA).
