Summary

Environmental Management

Lincoln University’s focus and reputation for research opens the way for you to study programmes that connect different topics across a range of fascinating areas with real relevance to the future of our planet and natural resources.

This research-based Master’s lets you blend study and application across areas like agriculture, industry, transport, communications, recreation and tourism. Then relate these to vitally important subjects like international rural development and the management and conservation of our biosphere and natural resources.

The Environmental Management specialisation within Lincoln’s Master of Applied Science examines the fundamental questions of ‘how do we live?’, ‘how should we live?’ and ‘how could we live?. Each of these questions cuts to the heart of what environmental management is about. They illustrate the complexity of issues that are often described under ‘environmental’, when they are also entangled in socio-cultural, political, and economic practices at a range of scales. This degree is designed to equip you with the advanced knowledge, research, critical analysis, evaluation, problem-solving and communication skills that are needed to address these inherently complex issues.

Then relate these to vitally important subjects like international rural development and the management and conservation of our biosphere and natural resources.

The International Rural Development specialisation cultivates understanding of how communities across the world are attempting to grow productivity of land-based industries whilst also limiting and reducing negative environmental and socio-cultural impacts. There is a global need for graduates with sophisticated understanding of the challenges associated with these goals, requiring knowledge of the latest social and technological solutions, management systems and new science. The programme expands your abilities to engage through the economic, social and political dimensions, as they apply to the development contexts of agribusiness, environmental management, economics, finance and tourism.
