The Environmental Policy and Management programme at Lincoln University Canterbury has been designed to equip graduates with the research and analytical skills needed to understand and evaluate the interconnections between the complex issues often described simply as ‘environmental’.


These issues are also entangled in socio-cultural, political and economic contexts and practices at a range of scales. Broad questions such as How do we live? How should we live? How could we live? cut to the heart of what environmental policy and management is about. 

Graduates of the Environmental Policy and Management programme at Lincoln University Canterbury will develop advanced skills in research, critical evaluation, problem-solving and communication - and you will be able to meet these questions with solutions.


Career opportunities include working with government agencies, regional councils, environmental and business consultancy firms, industry organisations, non-government organisations, and advocacy groups.
