The activities of the Centre for Environmental Management in the Faculty of Natural and Agricultural Sciences at the University of the Free State involve education and training, conducting applied research and providing expert services:

- Presenting an interdisciplinary Master’s degree in Environmental Management, and a PhD in Environmental Management
- Presenting short courses on a variety of topics
- Conducting research for academic and contract purposes

The Centre’s work is concentrated mainly on corporate environmental management, and we have a flexible approach to course content. We continuously adapt course topics and content to meet the need for information about new developments in environmental management, and for requirements related to professional development by practitioners.

The Centre’s graduates are ideally situated to become leaders in the field of environmental management in the public or private sector. Our approach impresses upon students the interdisciplinary nature of the field of study, and the course guides them to mastery of the scientific process.
