Course summary

Course overview: This course includes a foundation year - ideal if you need additional preparation or if you don't have sufficient grades to join Year 1. Environmental scientists have a passion for the environment and developing sustainable solutions. Human impacts on the planet are profound and far-reaching, so there is a growing demand for environmental solutions in all sectors of our society. New technological and environmental approaches are needed to conserve the planet's natural resources, and change to economic, political, and social policies to mitigate the impact before it’s too late. You explore multiple disciplines (physical geography, geology, atmospheric science, environmental chemistry, biology, and ecology) in classroom, laboratory, computer, and field-based learning environments. You gain key skills in quantitative analysis, geographic information system mapping and spatial data analysis, as well as field and laboratory techniques for monitoring environmental and ecological impacts.
