Climate change, the impact of a growing human population and the threat to biodiversity, three of the most crucial challenges facing our species, and planet, are addressed on this programme. It is therefore a vitally important area of study if we are to ensure that life on Earth continues. This degree gives you a solid scientific grounding, with extensive laboratory work, supported by insight into biodiversity and awareness of recent advances in ecology and conservation, as well as the opportunity to undertake detailed fieldwork in a rich diversity of habitats. It will appeal to those with a keen scientific interest in wildlife and the environment and provide you with a strong foundation for your future career.
