Resources Management


The Resources Management minor covers diversified aspects in relation to conservation and management of various resources, sustainable development, urbanization, globalization and GIS skills. Courses pertinent to physical and cultural resources planning and management can enhance students’ understanding of the problems associated with the use or misuse of our resources and current management practices of resources conservation. Other courses examine the essential concepts and practices of globalization, urbanization and sustainable development.

Students who adopt the Resources Management minor will be equipped with the essential knowledge of both physical and cultural resources conservation and management. They will not only be interested in pursuing their further studies in the field of geography or environmental studies, but will also develop their career in the fields related to resources management, including job opportunities in the Environmental Protection Department, the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation, green NGOs and environmental consultancies.

Adopting Resource Management as a minor, students are required to complete five courses in which two courses should be at the elementary level (Level 1 & 2) and three courses at the advanced level (Level 3 & 4).  There are altogether 4 and 5 elementary and advanced courses respectively for their choices.
