Course summary

Environmental Scientists are needed more than ever by industry, government, and society. This degree brings together a wide range of subjects to explore the most important environmental issues, such as climate change, pollution, renewable energy, and food security. This degree covers biology (giving you an understanding of organisms, their environments, and their communities), chemistry (providing an understanding of many natural environmental processes and pollution), earth science (giving you a background in global processes), and land and water resource management. This combination of subject areas, combined with many practical sessions and field trips, creates a degree that is both fascinating and rewarding.Our location makes Bangor an ideal place to study Environmental Science as there is access to a wide range of natural environments ranging from the coast, to the varied landscape of Snowdonia National Park with its long history of multiple land use, mining, and quarrying. Field trips are central throughout our Environmental Science degree. As well as local trips, we have residential trips further afield.We have close links with local, national, and international organisations that employ environmental scientists, helping us to ensure that our degree is relevant and up to date.This degree is accredited by the Institution of Environmental Science (IES). Following an accredited degree will make you more employable and you will receive numerous benefits throughout your degree, such as a monthly newsletter and magazine with opportunities to publish articles current issues, news about jobs, and free or reduced entry to relevant events. It is also the first step on an environmental career path which could take you to Chartered Status.‘Placement Year’ and 'International Experience Year’ options are available for this course. You will have the opportunity to fully consider these options when you have started your course at Bangor and can make an application for a transfer onto such a pathway at the appropriate time. You can find more information about these options on our website and if you have any questions, please get in touch.If you don’t have the required qualifications for this degree-level course or are looking to re-enter education after time away from study, then a Foundation Year Programme might be the right choice for you.
