Our accredited programme will enable you to integrate scientific knowledge with an awareness of social, economic and ethical issues, to tackle key environmental challenges such as climate change, sustainability, food security and conservation. In Environmental Science you will explore the ecology, geology and chemistry disciplines that underpin the subject. You will develop an awareness of the nature, causes and scope of environmental, ecological and sustainability challenges and develop your professional skills in areas including fieldwork, programming and statistics. The geography component of this programme will enable you to explore a variety of topics in physical geography. Our focus on climate change, global responsibility, sustainability, and the application of professional geographical skills to real-world situations will prepare you for a wide range of careers and for life as a responsible global citizen. Building on the knowledge you have learnt in both subjects, you will progress to explore advanced topics in your second and third years of study. The programme will culminate with the opportunity to unleash your creativity and apply the techniques you have acquired throughout your studies by completing a final year dissertation in an appropriate area of environmental science or environment or sustainability.
