Course summary

Through Science and in everyday life we understand that climate change is happening all around us. As our planet continues to warm up and climate patterns change, bringing extreme and unpredictable weather, environments will become hotter, drier or wetter, the natural resources we rely upon will become increasingly threatened and all life on Earth will be severely impacted.BSc Earth, Climate and Environmental Change is a new degree designed to develop a strong scientific understanding of Earth system science and how it has shaped today’s world. This three year course examines many of the greatest challenges faced in the 21st century including natural hazards, resource security and climate change.You’ll experience teaching that is research-led, quantitative science based, underpinned by the world-leading expertise of academic research in the Earth Science department, from atmospheric composition, greenhouse gas emissions and environmental diagnosis, to paleoclimates, ocean science and the cryosphere. You’ll benefit from this cutting-edge quantitative physical science research as you engage in a broader and deeper study of the subject, and you’ll experience the thrill of working in a research group on real world problems through independent projects.Underpinning training in core knowledge will be the teaching of key skills used to monitor and inform on environmental change, such as air and water composition, field sampling and observation, remote sensing, data handling, GIS and computer modelling. You will develop your abilities as a quantitative physical scientist, practicing your skills in collecting and analysing raw data with statistical rigour and applying it to understanding physical processes in Earth system science.You will graduate equipped with the specialist knowledge and practical skills to tackle the scientific challenges of a rapidly changing world, ideally prepared for a scientific or technical career in your chosen field, or ready to progress into postgraduate study.- Develop a deep understanding of humanity’s relationship with the planet.- Participate in exciting fieldwork opportunities.- Choose from a range of optional modules to tailor your learning to fit your interests.- Recommended for those who wish to undertake a broader and deeper study of the subject.
