Course description

Do you want to combine exploring the interfaces between physical, human and ecological environments with the practical role of business in engaging with and shaping these interactions? Drawing on expertise within the School of Geography, School of Biological and Chemical Science and the School of Business and Management, this multidisciplinary degree programme allows you to explore a diverse range of topics. From evolution to climate change; environmental pollution to river science and management; you will study business concerns such as economics, management, marketing and human resources; as well as environmental engineering and the geographies of science and nature. You will undertake core training in environmental research techniques, financial accounting and business strategy, as well as exciting fieldwork opportunities in the UK, the USA and New Zealand.* *Compulsory fieldwork in the School of Geography is undertaken at no extra cost. Optional overseas fieldwork will incur extra costs. Destinations can vary year-on-year and are subject to availability.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
The recession has been difficult for some environmental scientists, with jobs and funding cuts, so bear that in mind when you look at the figures. This is also one of those subjects where graduates don’t usually go to London to work, so if you want to work in East Anglia or the South West – or overseas – this might be a good subject. Graduates tend to get jobs in the environment, in surveying and as lab technicians, but, like a lot of other subjects, if you want a job in research, start planning to take a doctorate. The stats also include a small number of oceanographers and meteorologists.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
Management degrees are a popular choice, with more than 6,000 graduates in 2012. It's not a surprise to hear that a lot of graduates from the subject went into management, and remember that, for this degree, a lot of the jobs are in London. But management graduates tried their hands at all sorts of different jobs last year – not just those within the finance industry, but also community work, IT, marketing and PR and even surveying. This is a flexible degree that can fit graduates for all sorts of work.
