What Will You Study
Environmental Science is an integrated study of the challenges facing environments, both natural and man-made. Our degree enables you to combine the disciplines of Geography, Geology, Chemistry and Physics and investigate subjects including climate change, sustainability, pollution and geological hazards. We offer theory-based lectures alongside practical work, both in the lab and in the field.
You start your Environmental Science degree studying subjects such as Hydrological and Geological Processes and move on to second year modules including the Composition of Earth's Atmosphere and an Environmental Field Course. Students taking the Study Abroad option spend the second year of their degree at one of our partner universities in North America or Australasia.
In your final year, you complete a Dissertation with Employability Skills or Work Placement/Internship as well as studying options such as Frontiers in Ecology and Evolution.
