The Climate Change - Environment, Science and Policy MSc programme at King's College London is an opportunity for graduates of geography, physical sciences, engineering and computer sciences to explore specific issues relating to climate and environmental change at an advanced level.
An organisation's human resources, or human capital, are the people employed by the organisation and what every organisation depends upon to operate successfully. HRM refers to the activities and people that assist the organisation to meet its operational objectives by providing a motivated, well-trained workforce that understands the business and can contribute to its objectives.
HR is an area of continual change and is always responding to the business environment. HR is increasingly central to the success of Australian organisations both large and small.There are a diverse range of functional areas that fall under the HRM banner, including: workforce planning and recruitment, occupational health and safety/risk management, selection and induction, performance management, training and development, remuneration and benefits, equal employment opportunity, HR information systems (HRIS), IR, organisational change and international HRM.
The direct method to enter HRM is to undertake a specialised HR or business degree with a major in HR or IR, and from there, work experience in a base-level HR position. Junior positions may involve activities such as payroll administration and working with HRIS.
Many HR positions are created by growth in an organisation and by the realisation that there is a need to look after the people . In small to medium-sized organisations there is a tendency to appoint someone already employed within the organisation with a good understanding of the business to undertake HR activities, rather than recruit a specialist from outside the business.
You will explore a wide range of critical topics focusing on human-originated influences on the terrestrial, hydrological and atmospheric environments, and their biological, physical and societal consequences. Key benefits I want to find another Master Course Gain an up-to-date understanding of the nature and processes of environmental changes occurring in Earth's terrestrial, hydrological and atmospheric environments. Study the methods used to examine the potential future consequences of environmental changes. Learn to evaluate and analyse environmental change research critically and reflect on the strengths and weaknesses and potential societal implications of the science. Develop an understanding of the scientific evidence needed for policymakers and society to respond to the problems associated with global and regional environmental changes impacting the Earth. Description The Climate Change: Environment, Science & Policy MSc is a flexible course allowing you to study either a Policy or a Science pathway. Our course will provide you with an in-depth understanding of the processes and the nature of environmental changes occurring in the Earth's terrestrial, hydrological and atmospheric environments. You will also develop essential research, analysis and critical-thinking skills that will help you to understand and interpret scientific evidence and also respond to the problems associated with global and regional environmental changes in the Earth's system. Career prospects Our MSc is designed to prepare you for a career in environmental change research, consultancy and/or policy development. It provides interdisciplinary research training for those going onto a PhD in environmental and/or Earth system science within King's or elsewhere, and students entering the job market immediately after graduation are expected to be highly marketable in three main areas: local and national governmental and non-governmental agencies (eg Environment Agency, County Councils, Nature Conservancies); The Climate Change - Environment, Science and Policy programme is offered at King's College London.
