Course summary

Our Sustainability and Environmental Management degree explores the environmental, economic and social implications of our decisions and attempts to find sustainable solutions to environmental problems. Drawing on environmental science and ecology, you will develop your knowledge and skills in the science underpinning environmental issues. At the same time, learning opportunities in politics, economics, policy and law help you to evaluate societies' role in, and interaction with, changes in the natural world. You’ll be trained in data collection and analysis and will refine your research skills in a research project and through hands-on field training. Why study at Leeds
