Earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, hurricanes and tsunamis are some of the most significant natural hazards facing society, while other environmental challenges such as flooding, landslides, contaminated land and polluted water often arise from human impact on the earth’s surface and resources. Furthermore, there are growing concerns that climate change is increasing the frequency and magnitude of environmental hazards and disasters. This degree will provide you with a scientific understanding of the causes and effects of geoenvironmental hazards, as well as the skills to analyse, evaluate and monitor hazards and to predict, mitigate and manage their impact and future effects, engaging in a variety of fieldwork projects in the UK and abroad. The programme provides a wealth of transferable skills, enhanced with tailored careers and employability activities across each of the three years, to help you find the career of your choice.
