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 laboratory and in the field.

You start your Environmental Science degree studying subjects such as Global Environmental Challenges, Hydrological and Geological Processes and move on to second year modules including the Composition of Earth's Atmosphere and Ecosystem Services and Society.

In your third year, you complete a Dissertation with Employability Skills or Work Placement/Internship, as well as studying options such as Climate and Society or Geological Hazards.

During your fourth and final year you will select from a broad range of masters-level modules which span the microbiology, environmental modelling, risk assessment and renewable energy, alongside undertaking a research dissertation in your final year.
