Environmental sciences

Do you want to study in one of the best natural and archaeological landscapes in the UK? If the answer is yes, the BSc (Hons) Archaeology and Environmental Studies degree is for you. This course gives you the opportunity to focus on the scientific aspects of archaeology while combining your studies with sustainability issues, techniques in field-based evidence, and ethics. The Highlands and Islands of Scotland offer some of the best nature and heritage conservation sites in the UK and the residential field modules, which form part of your studies, will enable you to experience these while developing your environmental and archaeological skills; skills that will provide opportunities to pursue careers in a wide range of research, policy or interpretation roles with a range of wildlife or heritage groups.
