Our Environmental Science courses integrate theory-based learning with practical and project work, to work towards sustainable solutions to environmental problems. On our BSc Environmental Science degree, you will study one of four specialist pathways: Aquatic Environments and Resources, Biodiversity and Conservation, Environmental Change, and Sustainable Environmental Management. This challenging and interdisciplinary course embraces a wide range of subjects including environmental science, geography, ecology, geology, law, and oceanography. Specialising in your chosen pathway, you will develop the knowledge and skills required to tackle the complex major environmental challenges of the twenty-first century.
In each year of study, you will complete compulsory modules, plus a further number relating to your chosen pathway. Core modules (for all four pathways): Year 1: Environmental Science: Concepts and Communication, Environmental Science: Research and Applications, Quantitative Methods, Environmental Field Techniques and Applications. Year 2: Environmental Pollution, Environmental Impact Assessment, Geographic Information Systems (GIS) for Environmental Scientists, Environment and Sustainability. Year 3: Individual Project, Environmental Law and Management.
