About this program

BSc (Hons) Environmental Management & Sustainability

With increasing concerns about climate change and the impacts of humans on our planet there has never been a more important time to study this highly contemporary and engaging course if you want to make a difference.

This new and exciting course has been created specifically to address how we can manage the environment better with a key focus on sustainable futures.

The course has been inspired by leading employers in the environmental sector and developed in conjunction with experts working in the environmental sector. Employability skills are therefore at the core of your learning. Employers will want the skills you acquire.

You will gain skills in the assessment, monitoring, evaluation, and interpretation of interactions between humans and the environment, and learn how to develop recommendations for sustainable management. Our students therefore graduate with the confidence to enter the workplace and make a difference.

You will be taught by university lecturers carrying out internationally recognised research to address environmental issues, including pollution, sustainable food production, and the conservation of species and habitats.

The course is set strongly in the context of environmental and socio-economic sustainability and how environmental management can be used to meet the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

At the University of Worcester, we will work with you to help ensure you get more from your degree than just an excellent education and student experience.
