The MSc in Sustainable Development is a new course which seeks to provide an interdisciplinary training that will enable students to be fully conversant with the various constituents of sustainable development. In doing so it aims to equip participants with the conceptual and analytical tools they need to address the growing importance of incorporating ethical dimensions, economic prudence, social awareness and environmental principles as the cornerstones of development. The programme has been conceived primarily for those already working or seeking to work in government and non-government organisations.
The programmes have a flexible structure with modules offered as a series of intensive one-week lectures, seminars and practical exercises, supported by independent learning material. Each module is self-contained and individually assessed. Most of the modules are attended together with students on the University's prestigious Engineering Doctorate (Eng.D) programme in Environmental Technology. Students can undertake their studies either on a full-time or part-time basis.
In addition to the MSc qualification, the courses also offer a direct route to Associate Membership of the Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment (IEMA).
