Environmental Management in Europe is an interdisciplinary 15 ECTS online MSc course offered by the University of Copenhagen, with contribution from the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences in Vienna, the University of Hohenheim and the European Environment Agency.
The aim of the course is to provide a solid understanding of how environmental management in Europe is applied at different scales, from the EU level to the national, regional and local levels.
During the first part of the course the tools for environmental management in EU are introduced, including environmental monitoring, assessment, modeling and valuation, as well as EU environmental law and policy. In the second part of the course the key EU environmental directives are analysed and discussed, including the Habitat Directive, Water Framework Directive, Air Quality Directive, Climate Action and Energy Package and Soil Framework Directive, as well as the integration of environmental policies across the directives.
Teaching is based on highly flexible E-learning modules with weekly deadlines, starting on the 26th of August 2015 and ending on the 31st of January 2016, and you can follow the course from everywhere in the world.
On the 26th and 27th of August 2015 there will be two introduction days at the University of Copenhagen that you may join either in person at the Frederiksberg Campus or online via webcam.
The course is open for both MSc, PhD and continuing education students, and students completing the course will get a regular exam certificate and course transcript from the University of Copenhagen.
