Help set the environmental agenda. If you want to solve the environmental problems that are to come, Environmental Planning is the thing for you.
Interdisciplinary environmental specialist - a unique profile
Environmental Resource Management consists of equal parts social science and technology/natural science, allowing you to get the best from both worlds in one education. You will learn to understand the extent and reasons for environmental problems. And you receive a broad interdisciplinary knowledge of the relations and conflicts between nature, environment, society and economy.
This enables you to develop durable, environmentally viable solutions that appeal to different interest groups. Nature and environment are perceived differently by economists, engineers, politicians, Non-Governmental Organisations and citizens, and with a broad context of knowledge, you can make an environmental difference and make the right decisions.
The focus of the environmental resource manager is strategic, but during the education, you will also participate in field work. We take samples from water works etc. By doing this, you get an understanding of the kind of work your future collaborators are doing.
An interest in the environment and the challenges we are facing now and in the future is key when you decide to become an environmental resource manager. You will learn the necessary skills during the education.
Your options with a BA in Environmental Resource Management
Once you graduate with a BA, you can apply for jobs or continue as a post-graduate student for another two years and receive an MA in Environmental Resource Management.
