Course Description

irkbeck's BSc Environmental Management gives you a deep understanding of what drives environmental change and how to manage natural systems under unprecedented pressure. Learning from internationally-recognised researchers, you will discover the core scientific principles you need to understand key environmental challenges, including climate change, pollution and waste management, biodiversity loss, and biosecurity.

You will become familiar with fundamental dimensions of environmental management, including adaptation, mitigation and corporate responsibility. You will learn to collect, analyse and interpret environmental data to improve management practices.

Core modules will give you a grounding in the ecological and social dimensions of environmental management. You can tailor your degree by choosing optional modules on themes like the global food crisis, nature conservation, hydrology, storms, flooding and sea-level rise, cities and urban inequalities, and geographic information science (GIS).

You will benefit from our mix of classroom and field-based teaching, including a number of fieldwork opportunities that bring together students to build networks and develop important skills in data collection and analysis. You will develop the social and technical skills you need for both academic research and the modern workplace.

Upon successful completion of the Foundation Year, you can automatically progress on to our three-year, full-time evening study BSc Environmental Management.

Assessment Methods

Assessment is an integral part of your university studies and usually consists of a combination of coursework and examinations, although this will vary from course to course - on some of our courses, assessment is entirely by coursework. The methods of assessment on this course are specified below under 'Methods of assessment on this course'. You will need to allow time to complete coursework and prepare for exams.

Where a course has unseen written examinations, these may be held termly, but, on the majority of our courses, exams are usually taken in the Summer term, during May to June. Exams may be held at other times of the year as well. In most cases, exams are held during the day on a weekday - if you have daytime commitments, you will need to make arrangements for daytime attendance - but some exams are held in the evening. Exam timetables are published online.vvvvvvvvvvvvvv
