Small group teaching is a feature of Environmental Management at Salford and there are strong links between the content of this course and staff research interests. You will get all the support you need from friendly and accessible academic staff, and you will have weekly tutorials with your personal tutor, ensuring that you will quickly get to know other students.
Fieldwork is a key element of the course. Field trips are aligned with the specialist modules, allowing you to develop applied skills and gain practical experience. You can take part in day trips to the Peak District and Yorkshire Dales, as well as residential field courses in Denmark or the European Alps.
Environmental resources (including food, energy and water) are topics studied in this course. Spatial and temporal variations in availability of these resources, as climate warms, are arguably the priority issues for society in the 21st century. You also take part in project-orientated group work where real-life problems will be tackled, supporting the development of personal and professional skills.
This course is about understanding science and its interrelationship with the environment. You will learn how organisations perceive the environment and the important considerations necessary for them to invest in improving their performance.
Year 1 provides a solid foundation across the breadth of the subject, and includes field and laboratory work, study skills development, data handling and interpersonal skills. You take six 20 credit modules in year 1.
Year 2 extends both your knowledge and understanding and increases your specialisation. You take four core modules oriented around knowledge and skills development, and choose two additional modules on subjects of interest to you. The course includes fieldwork and site visits to enhance your learning.
