Description

Advertisement

The MSc/Diploma in Environmental Economics and Environmental Management (EEEM) is a specialised programme of advanced interdisciplinary knowledge and skills in the economics and management of natural resources. From the field of ecology, it offers insights into the functioning of ecological systems, and the nature of the ecological feedback mechanisms responding to the economic utilisation of these systems. From the field of environmental economics, it offers insights into the optimal utilisation and management of scarce ecological resources, and the effects of economic activities on the natural environment. As a result students learn how to incorporate environmental feedback into the economic decision-making process in a way that satisfies the goals of both ecological resource managers and resource economists.

In particular, the MSc/Diploma in Environmental Economics and Environmental Management aims to:

* Provide students with advanced knowledge of, and skills in, economics and management of natural resources
* Develop critical and analytical capability in relation to the economics and management of environmental resources
* Provide students with training in: quantitative methods, bibliography/computing skills, research management, personal development and a range of other skills relevant to post-graduate employment
* Develop students´ interpersonal skills
* Assist students to develop the skills required for both self-study practice and team-working

The MSc in Environmental Economics and Environmental Management is of 12 months duration whilst the Diploma in Environmental Economics and Environmental Management runs for 9 months.

The MSc in Environmental Economics and Environmental Management provides an academic qualification for those intending to work or already working in the area of environmental management. It also serves as preparation for those who wish to enrol on a PhD course in this research field. Students also have the possibility to transfer from the MSc programme to the MPhil/PhD programme at the end of the taught module component.

The Diploma in Environmental Economics and Environmental Management offers an opportunity for mid-career professionals who may not wish to pursue a research degree, to upgrade their skills in this field.

Contents

All Environment degree programmes have a 'modular' structure, where each module comprises a 10-credit unit or multiple of this. A 10-credit module is equivalent to 100 hours of work, typically comprising 18 contact hours with staff and 82 hours of private-study for a lecture-based module. Modules involving field and laboratory classes have a higher proportion of contact time.

The MSc/Diploma course comprises both compulsory and optional modules. Students must accumulate 180 credits for the MSc course and 120 credits for the Diploma course in total.

Of the optional taught modules, the students on MSc/Diploma in Environmental Economics and Environmental Management may take at aminimum of 10-credits from the environmental/ecological optional modules (i.e. Biodiversity and Conservation Biology, Environmental Law and Policy, Fisheries Ecology and Management, Pollution Control and Waste Management, Pollution Effects on Soil/Plant/Water Ecosystems, Wildlife Management).

An 80 credits dissertation forms a major component of the MSc in Environmental Economics and Environmental Management. The dissertation involves the application of economic theory and methodology to a problem in environmental economics and environmental management.

Requirements

To enter the MSc in Environmental Economics and Environmental Management directly the applicant:

1) must have obtained, or expect to obtain, at least an upper second class degree (i.e. 2.1 or equivalent) 2) must have studied both some economics and some biology, one at degree level 3) IELTS: 6.0; TOEFL: paper-based: 550; CBT: 213; iBT: 79; and Cambridge: Cambridge Proficiency: A, B, C; Cambridge Cert in Advanced English: A

However, able candidates may compensate for a lack of undergraduate economics by taking the Economics Department's Summer School in Microeconomics and Statistics (4 week course) starting the last week of August 2007. Special consideration may be made for candidates who wish to take courses in mid-career as continued professional development. Diploma applicants must also have an adequate level of English.

Applicants whose native language is not English may wish to improve their English whilst studying at York by attending (for a small extra fee) courses run by the University's Language Centre during their degree. As well as improving language skills this course will also provide a valuable introduction to British culture.
