We use a wide range of teaching and learning approaches, including lectures, small group workshops, tutorials, laboratory and computer practicals and field trips.
Practical work is an essential part of your degree and during your first and second years you will make regular visits to sites and organisations such as the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the New Forest.
The aim is to study different aspects of management and issues, such as conservation, renewable energy and sustainability, using diverse environments as study areas. You'll have the opportunity to visit habitats such as moorlands, rivers, coasts, national parks, and natural and plantation woodlands as you learn about the complexities of maintaining and managing specific resources.
In your final year, you'll look at specific issues addressed by environmental management organisations, often using case studies or practical work examples. You will also work on an independent research project on a subject of your choice.
