We live in a dynamic world where the impact of human activity on the environment and society is now recognised as needing urgent attention. In 2015 the UN launched its 17 Sustainable Development Goals which have quickly become adopted as the framework by which nations and organisations are measuring their progress.
Demand for sustainability practitioners is growing and is likely to continue to grow. This course aims to equip you with a range of knowledge, skills and experience integral to the sustainability and environmental professional.
The MSc in Sustainability and Environmental Management course offered at Coventry University reflects the needs of the profession as well as the research interests and commercial background of the lecturing staff. As such, it is evolving to meet the needs of this important discipline.
The Sustainability and Environmental Management programme offered by the Coventry University aims to equip you with a range of knowledge, skills and experience integral to becoming a sustainability and environmental professional. The course focuses on the environmental, technological, political and social issues associated with environmental management and sustainability issues that face organisations.
All modules are relevant to the needs of the sustainability and environmental profession, based on IEMA’s graduate attributes. The formative and summative assignments that you will be set are industry-focused or have a real world practical application.
You will be guided in development planning and reflective practice as current or future leaders, with a focus on influencing and managing change in your team, organisation and the sector more widely.
Your career path could involve being actively engaged in delivering sustainable development within all types of organisations. At the heart of most modules are the UN Sustainable Development Goals, which are becoming the benchmark for organisations seeking to contribute. You will also have the chance to visit local businesses and study their activities, impacts and interactions with communities and stakeholders, comparing and contrasting these to organisations around the world.
