Course summary

If you want to explore how our Earth system operates and its underlying mathematical principles, our combined course is for you. Throughout this degree, you’ll look into the processes that shape our world's dramatic landscapes and the dynamics of the atmosphere and biosphere, and how you can have a say in how we manage our future environment. You'll also develop an appreciation of how processes at work on the Earth's surface can be described mathematically and represented in simulation models. For those who wish to, there is flexibility within the course structure to choose modules in human geography as well as in subjects across the University, allowing you to customise your learning to match your interests. This course offers all of the benefits of being a BSc Geography graduate alongside being equipped with quantitative skills that employers within environmental industries tell us they need. Graduates from this course will be able to simulate environmental processes, understand how these processes have changed in the past, and how they are likely to evolve into the future. You’ll develop both specialist and transferable skills. You’ll build skills in presenting your ideas in reports and orally, in data collection, in data analysis, and in the mathematical understanding and simulation of environmental processes.
