The Centre for Environmental Management in the Faculty of Natural and Agricultural Sciences at the University of the Free State (UFS) has established a niche for itself in South Africa.
The niche is based on three interlinked components, namely:
- The Masters Programme in Environmental Management and Doctoral Programme
- Short Courses
- A Research and Contract Component
The Centre concentrates on Corporate Environmental Management and incorporates the pending requirements for Environmental Assessment Practitioners.
The Centre provides education and training, applied research and expert services to promote a Masters Programme that incorporates the complex world of climate change, population growth and management.
The Centre produces environmental leaders by drawing on teaching and research from many fields to provide a trans-disciplinary approach to environmental management.
