Sustainability is a cross-cutting theme relevant to a wide range of sectors including those such as food production, farming, chemical production, manufacturing, construction, service sector and retail, as well as at a policy level. The need for sustainable development is becoming increasingly important throughout the UK and globally, and organizations are now reflecting this in the decisions they make and the policies they put in place. To achieve these goals, a new generation of sustainability specialists is needed to support companies, public services, and non-profit organizations to identify and implement policies and strategies to manage the resources they use and the waste they generate.

The MSc in Sustainability program at the University of Lincoln aims to offer a broad range of topics, which enable students to develop both the technical knowledge of the subject, as well as the leadership and business skills necessary to embed sustainable practices, develop sustainable products and services and to implement change. This program is designed to promote a broad understanding of the topic, through real-life related assignments to develop core competencies and through a specific personal project to increase a graduate's employability across a range of sectors including housing, the built environment, food and agriculture, energy and water sector, service sector, retail, policy and manufacturing.

Prioritising Face-to-Face Teaching

At the University of Lincoln, we strive to ensure our students’ experience is engaging, supportive, and academically challenging. Throughout the Coronavirus pandemic, we have adapted to Government guidance to keep our students, staff, and community safe. All remaining Covid-19 legal restrictions in England were lifted in February 2022 under the Government&rsquo's Plan for Living with Covid-19, and we have embraced a safe return to in-person teaching on campus. Where appropriate, face-to-face teaching is enhanced by the use of digital tools and technology and may be complemented by online opportunities where these support learning outcomes.

We are fully prepared to adapt our plans if changes in Government guidance make this necessary, and we will endeavour to keep current and prospective students informed.
