Centre for Environmental Management

Centre for Environmental Management Home Page



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:

We present the following degree courses:

    Honours in Limnology
    Postgraduate Diploma in Integrated Water Management (from 2017)
    Master of Environmental Management
    PhD in Environmental Management

We present short courses on a variety of topics and 
conduct research for academic and contract purposes. The African Water Symposium and Orange River Basin Symposium are also hosted by the Centre for Environmental Management.

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.
