These courses produce science graduates with an interdisciplinary understanding of the complexity and uncertainty of environmental systems. Graduates will be equipped with the skills and competencies to observe, measure, model and manage these systems. This is achieved through the integration of theoretical, practical and field-based approaches.Interdisciplinary in nature, the courses embrace ecology, geography, glaciology, meteorology, hydrology, oceanography, geology, pedology and environmental chemistry, and consider present-day environmental problems such as climate change, natural hazards, environmental degradation, conservation, planning, recreation, tourism provision, and international development.Studying Education as a minor in combination with Environmental Science offered at Ulster is an excellent introduction to a future career path in the general education sector.
