Environmental Management


Welcome to the Open University's postgraduate programme in Environmental Management (EM)

The Environmental Management programme offers a range of modules that can lead to a Postgraduate Certificate, Postgraduate Diploma or Masters degree. It is primarily about people and their decisions and actions that have environmental effects, rather than being a programme about the 'environment'

This programme is constructed with a wide range of professional activities and occupations in mind. It is relevant to those working in environmental management as well as in associated activities such as health and safety or quality management. Whatever your background it will widen your knowledge of environmental management in business, the public sector and other organisation. You will develop your skills in making informed decisions about environmental issues, whether at work, in your community or at home.

Through the EM programme, you can join the thousands of students each year who study the OU style of supported open learning in the UK, throughout Europe or further afield.

Modules in the programme are studied through a mix of on-line and printed materials, supported by on-line forums and other resources. All modules are studied with support from an OU tutor.
