Course summary

How can you help communities prepare for natural disasters and environmental hazards? Your lab and field work will equip you for a range of roles in everything from disaster relief to urban planning. What can we do to prevent flooding? How do volcanic eruptions impact lives? Why is climate change increasing the frequency and magnitude of environmental hazards? Study with us to predict, mitigate and manage today’s most pressing environmental challenges. Our environmental geoscience course is designed to give you a scientific insight into the causes and effects of different hazards. You’ll learn about a range of hazards, from landslides to volcanoes, hurricanes to heatwaves. Then, we’ll encourage you to discuss how these issues often arise from human impact on the Earth’s surface and resources. You can also tailor your degree to your interests, with the opportunity to select subject-specific and complementary modules. Employability is built into this programme. We offer invaluable opportunities like completing a placement year, studying abroad and learning a language.
