Environment, Economics and Ecology with a placement year

Course summary

Economic development, population growth, poverty, and globalisation all place increasing demands on our environment and its resources. Our unique Environment, Economics and Ecology degree focuses on ecosystem services. These are the processes by which the environment produces the resources we need such as clean air, water, food and materials. Our health and wellbeing depend upon these services and our use and management of these natural resources. We study the links between human and natural systems and the need for a holistic socio-ecological approach to understanding challenges and solutions to environmental conservation and sustainable development.
