Course summary

This course is 3 years or 4 years if you choose to complete an optional placement year.Environmental Sciences examine the natural environment and human impact upon it. 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 Psychology as a minor combination will include training in scientific methods of enquiry and how psychology can be applied in professional practice. You will attain research skills in lab-based practical sessions and develop statistical and computer competence.Environmental Sciences offer a broad scientific training and a wide range of career choices. Our graduates have found employment as teachers (both primary and secondary), landscape planners, environmental engineers, environmental consultants, tourist officers, landscape architects, countryside wardens, environmental officers, researchers, and more in both the private and public sectors. Additional professional and/or postgraduate training might also be necessary. Many excellent one-year postgraduate courses.
