Course Description

The University of Essex is one of the UK?s leading academic institutions, ranked ninth nationally for research excellence following the last Research Assessment Exercise (RAE). The Department of Biological Sciences has an international reputation for our outstanding record of teaching and research. The quality of our work is reflected in the large number of publications in high profile academic journals, such as Nature, Science, Proceedings of the National Academy USA, Journal of Biological Chemistry, Molecular Cell, Plant Cell, Limnology and Oceanography and Environmental Microbiology. Several of our staff have active leadership roles in learned societies and are editors of leading biological science journals. An unprecedented combination of pressures is threatening the health of social and ecological systems across the world. Continued population growth, rapidly changing consumption patterns and climate change are driving limited resources of food, energy, water and materials towards and beyond critical thresholds. There is an urgent need for interdisciplinary study that crosses the boundaries between intimately interwoven natural and social systems. Our MAMSc Environmental Governance addresses this by focusing on the analysis, conservation, protection and management of natural resources, and the institutions and policies that shape human actions. Eight Essex departments contribute to our unique interdisciplinary course, providing you with the critical capacity to analyse environmental issues from a range of perspectives. Our course is suited to graduates from all disciplinary backgrounds and gives a thorough training in the principles and practices of environmental governance if you wish to pursue a career in environmental management and regulation, research and policy.
