Course Content

The compulsory modules of your course will provide you with an academic understanding of the principles of environmental practice. You can choose to follow one of the three themes from the optional modules.


Teaching and Learning

You’ll be taught by Environmental Scientists whose research into exposure to harmful chemicals has changed government attitudes and policy. The Environmental Sciences team at Brunel are previous winners of the Queens Anniversary Prize for two decades of pioneering research. This means that our award-winning lecturers will bring their experience, passion and renowned expertise to your lectures.



Climate Change and Planetary Health

Planetary health is a new framework that seeks to unite the traditional distinctions between human health, societal well-being, and ecological integrity. This module identifies the interrelationships between human health and the state of natural systems on which it depends.

Environmental Management and Legislation

This module enables students to understand the key management principles necessary for the successful implementation of sound environmental management practice, to understand the environmental, methodological and technological and legislative issues in environmental management, and to understand the main environmental legislation and policy at the level of the European Union as well as internationally.


The main aim of this modular block is to provide the students with hands-on experience of applying the tools and techniques learnt within the MSc and to spend a six-month Professional Development period the purpose of which is to help launch the students into their environmental sector career.

Research and Analytical Skills

This module aims to develop professional, research and critical skills necessary to support higher learning and an integrative approach to problem solving, necessary for success in careers in a variety of disciplines and in an academic environment.

It aims for students to become familiar with, and critically reflect on, methods and techniques for data gathering and knowledge development (experimental design concepts), including approaches to problem formulation, literature searches, and systematic review methodology.

Strategic Sustainable Development

The main aim is to learn about core concepts of 'strategic sustainable development' (SSD), including a thorough understanding of a structured planning and decision making model for application to real world issues known as the Framework for Strategic Sustainable Development (FSSD).


The dissertation allows students to undertake an in-depth study of a topic, using primary or secondary data sources, that is of relevance to the modular block, and to develop an integrated, and where appropriate interdisciplinary, understanding of the topic chosen.


After completing the course you will be equipped with the skills to pursue a range of environmental careers. You may wish to work as:

  • an environmental manager
  • an environmental analyst

Perhaps you start up your own consultancy or business.

Many of our graduates go on to PhD level and research green technology. Some have started their own businesses supporting SMEs to remove toxic chemicals from wastewater treatment. There are opportunities in:

  • business
  • industry
  • education
  • government
  • local councils
