If you are interested in sustainable development and planning, if you want a career in a new, developing and challenging area, and want to improve the environmental performance of organisations or help to mitigate global climate change then BSc (Hons) Environmental Management is for you.

Environmental Management is about understanding science and its relationship with the environment. You will learn how organisations perceive the environment and the important considerations necessary for them to invest in improving their performance.

Fieldwork is a key element of the programme and field trips are aligned with the specialist modules, allowing you to develop applied skills and gain practical experience. You may go on day trips to the Peak District and Yorkshire Dales, as well as residential field courses in Denmark or the European Alps. The majority of these trips are free, with students only needing to pay a modest administration fee.

Small group teaching is a beneficial feature of this course and there are strong links between course content and staff research interests. You will get all the support you need from friendly and accessible academic staff, along with weekly tutorials with your personal tutor.

• Learn how to apply techniques for assessing and managing the environmental effects of public and private sector organisations
• Develop personal, professional and research skills, and enhance employability through participation in consultancy-based project work
• There are a variety of free field trips on offer, allowing you to practice and apply field, laboratory and monitoring techniques in the UK and abroad
