Canterbury - New Zealand


Master of Environmental Policy (MEP)


This programme, introduced in 2001, sharpens the environmental policy orientation of its predecessor, the MSc (Resource Management), which was established in 1978. The course prepares graduates for positions as environmental policy analysts in the public and the private sector, at all levels (local and regional, national, and international). Students with a variety of first degrees (for instance, in science, the humanities, engineering, law, forestry and commerce) can apply.

The course progresses from mostly prescribed subjects in the first year, designed to familiarise students with a range of disciplines and subjects essential to policy analysis, to a more flexible programme in the second year that allows students to further develop and apply their skills to a variety of areas, such as local & regional environmental planning, comparative and international environmental policy, and to more defined policy sectors or topics, such as energy, bio-technology, environmental reporting, strategic environmental assessment, nature conservation, and gender, development and environment.

Core subjects of the programme are taught by a multi-disciplinary team of experts with a long-standing experience in their field, with input from other specialised staff in the Environmental Management & Design Division. The teaching style is interactive, demanding a high level of commitment from students, and a willingness to operate in teams.

Postgraduate subjects offered at Canterbury University may also be taken, but special conditions do apply and students must consult with the co-ordinator of the MEP prior to enrolling for subjects.

NZPI Accreditation

Students who successfully complete ERST 604 and LWST 602 (as well as the compulsory subjects of the programme) are eligible for membership of the New Zealand Planning Institute, which offers professional benefits to those who aspire to a career in environmental planning.


Admission to the programme is conditional upon approval by the course co-ordinator and Lincoln University’s Academic Administration Committee, and is dependent on demonstrated academic ability at the undergraduate level (in any discipline). Applicants should be aware of the demanding nature of the programme, and of the special features that distinguish this degree from most other (research based) degrees, among which requirements associated with team-based study. Some applicants may be required to successfully complete a bridging programme as a condition for admission to the course.

Applications should be lodged before 30 November. Applicants who apply after that date cannot be guaranteed a place in the programme in the following year.
