This programme provides fundamental and applied training in environmental science and environmental management, with a focus on water. Be a part of developing interdisciplinary solutions to priority water resource and catchment issues, working in close collaboration with our advisory board of representatives from the water industry.
Combine hydrology, applied geomorphology, biogeochemistry and ecology in this interdisciplinary masters degree in environmental management
Develop a core understanding of environmental science, environmental management systems and the key policy and legal frameworks that underpin them
Gain insights into water and environmental management including floodplain management, fluvial systems, catchement science and catchment management
Engage in fieldwork at our research sites ranging from globally rare chalk streams to heavily impacted rivers within London and southern England
What you'll study
You will have the opportunity to network within the water and environmental sectors, meeting experts with experience of working in a wide variety of public- and private-sector organisations such as AECOM, Atkins Global, Defra, Environment Agency, Natural England and National Trust.
You will be able to develop transferable skills in field and lab methods, project management, statistical analysis, geographical information systems (GIS) and the use of remotely sensed data, report writing, problem solving and presenting. We offer hands-on training in flood estimation and inundation modelling using industry-standard software, as well as river assessment methods.
You will be able to develop skills and knowledge in the monitoring and management of pollutants, nutrient levels and greenhouse gas emissions in aquatic systems and in the theory and practice of river restoration.
You will receive tailored research supervision and training suitable to your individual research interests in order to complete your individual research project. This will usually be completed in collaboration with a partner organisation.
Geospatial analysis, remote sensing and environmental modelling software and computing facilities
Analysis of environmental samples including water and sediment chemistry
River Laboratory incorporating sediment transport demonstration channel, river simulator and digital camera equipment and software to capture river morphology in 3D
Use dedicated Masters study and computing spaces within the School of Geography
Access an unparalleled range of learning resources, special collections, and world-leading libraries within QMUL and the University of London, such as the QMUL Library, Senate House Library. Other specialist collections are accessible nearby, for example at the British Library
The programme will provide you with knowledge and understanding relevant to employment in organisations in the water and environment sectors including government agencies, water companies, environmental consultancies and conservation organisations. Our previous graduates have secured positions at a range of organisations including:
South West Rivers Trust
Some of our graduates have also secured PhD positions (e.g. Newcastle University, QMUL, University of Reading)
Queen Mary University of London is a member of the Russell Group and has its roots in four historic colleges in east London.
