This is a four year degree taught at our Hope Park campus. The Foundation Year aims to develop your skills so that after a year, you will be equipped with the necessary skills needed for studying the full BA Hons degree programme. Understanding how the physical and ecological worlds interact; how people interact both with each other and with the physical and ecological world; and how landscapes (physical, ecological and human) evolve has never been more important than it is today to address the environmental challenges facing the world. This degree involves an interdisciplinary study of human and physical geography, biodiversity, ecology, aspects of environmental biology, and human/environment interactions. This is essential for understanding human impacts on the environment both living (ecological) and non-living components (geomorphological) and for addressing major environmental issues associated with biodiversity. By having knowledge and understanding of dynamic natural environmental processes and their interaction with human activity and technology enables informed management of environmental resources for a more sustainable future.
