As an Environmental Scientist, you will investigate the most pressing global and environmental challenges of our time. You will study a diverse range of topics, delivered by staff from Geography, Geoscience and Biological Sciences. Key topics include climate change, conservation, ecology, sustainable development and natural resources. You will gain key skills for monitoring environmental processes and for managing the critical environmental challenges faced by society. This degree provides students with a comprehensive understanding of the Earth, its living systems, and the complexity of environmental-societal interactions. Environmental scientists will develop a robust understanding of the science underpinning the environmental and ecological challenges of the twenty-first century, such as climate change, pollution, conservation and natural resource management. Drawing on material from Physical and Human Geography, Geosciences and Biological Sciences, students construct a degree with their own specialisms and foci, within an overall Environmental Science umbrella. This knowledge is supported by the development of core competencies in a range of laboratory, field and IT methods. Throughout, this course contains options for UK and international residential fieldwork. This new degree is designed to provide students with the critical skills to tackle the full scope the environmental challenges we face and contains extensive optionality. If you like the sound of this degree, but would prefer to include human geography as core content, you could also consider the Geography BSc. degree.
