Masters Degree in Sustainable Development Advocacy
Training graduates to influence government, community and business by applying sustainable thinking to professional practice.
The Bulmer Foundation’s Masters Degree in Sustainable Development Advocacy trains graduates to become experts in sustainable development and apply this thinking to the real world in business, in policy making or in the community.
Graduates of the Programme have proved to be highly employable and are well placed to go on to enjoy exciting and fulfilling careers. The University of Worcester says,
"Work experience is one of the most important things you can do to improve your future employability. A recent report of Graduate Employers (High Flyers 2012) showed that more than half of major graduate recruiters warn that graduates who have had no previous work experience at all are unlikely to be successful during the selection process."
The course is highly innovative; students learn through lectures, team projects and work placements in organisations such as the Environment Agency, Friends of the Earth and Unilever. The experiential approach to learning means that students develop an in-depth knowledge of all areas of sustainable development and gain the skills that are attuned to the needs of employers to help them move toward more sustainable practices.
It’s an intensive and incredibly rewarding Programme that you can do full or part-time. The Programme is based at the Cider Museum in central Hereford and is validated by the University of Worcester. We're delighted that the University has been rated the second greenest university in the country, according to a new league table published recently.
The University’s Director of Environmental Sustainability, Katy Boom, said: “The University of Worcester’s students are the future leaders and decision makers and we know that many businesses are looking for employees with sustainability skills. We are very proud of the range of opportunities we make available for our students. Many projects involve local business and community groups where all involved can learn skills and ways of working which reduces environmental impacts and increases social and economic wellbeing.”
