Course summary

Sustainability is a cross-cutting theme relevant to a wide range of sectors including those such as food production, farming, chemical production, manufacturing, construction, service sector and retail, as well as at a policy level. The need for sustainable development is becoming increasingly important throughout the UK and globally, and organisations are now reflecting this in the decisions they make and the policies they put in place. To achieve these goals, a new generation of sustainability specialists are needed to support companies, public services, and non-profit organisations to identify and implement policies and strategies to manage the resources they use and the waste they generate. The MSc in Sustainability programme at the University of Lincoln aims to offer a broad range of topics, which enable students to develop both the technical knowledge of the subject, as well as the leadership and business skills necessary to embed sustainable practices, develop sustainable products and services and to implement change. This programme is designed to promote a broad understanding of the topic, through real-life related assignments to develop core competencies and through a specific personal project to increase a graduate's employability across a range of sectors including housing, the built environment, food and agriculture, energy and water sector, service sector, retail, policy and manufacturing.

Assessment method

Assessment is through a blend of assignments, presentations, team projects, time-controlled assessments, and a final project/dissertation.
