Course summary

This course aims to develop an understanding of environmental sciences through the integration of theoretical, practical and field based approaches. Environmental Science route: Environmental science is a multidisciplinary academic field that integrates many of the sciences taught at secondary school (including Geography) and applies to the study of the environment, and to the solution of environmental problems. The course offers an integrated, quantitative and interdisciplinary approach to the study of environmental systems. This includes processes and management issues related to the hydrosphere, biosphere, atmosphere and geosphere. Strong transferrable skills are developed during the degree, especially in the use and application of Geographical Information Systems (GIS). Marine science route: We also offer a marine science route through the environmental science degree. Marine science is an interdisciplinary academic field dedicated to the study of the ocean. It covers a wide range of topics, including marine organisms and ecosystems, ocean currents and waves, plate tectonics and marine geology, fluxes of chemical substances, and the physical properties of the ocean and atmosphere.
