Course summary

This degree allows you to study and specialise in agricultural and environmental science. You'll boost your employability with a year-long work placement and a year of advanced study at master's level.

Course overview

The first three Stages of this degree follow the same programme as our Environmental Sciences BSc Honours degree.

Between Stages 2 and 3 you take a year-long work placement in a relevant environmental sector, gaining valuable work experience. In Stage 4 you'll learn the scientific principles underpinning the interactions of agriculture with the environment.

We place a strong emphasis on sustainability and sound management.

Specialist modules prepare you for a career in this area, and include:

  • environment and habitat assessment
  • climate change and land use
  • ecological and sustainable field crop production systems

Your degree is shaped by the cutting-edge research of our expert staff, so you know your degree is focused on up-to-date and socially important theories and discoveries in the area.

Teaching methods

In your first two years, just over half of your teaching time will be spent in classroom-based lectures or seminars. The remainder will be made up of field classes, computer classes, and practical lab work.

In your final year, greater emphasis is placed on project work, culminating in a final-year project based on a topic of your choice.

Your future

Our environmental science graduates undertake roles such as environmental consultancy and environmental engineering, and find employment with:

  • conservation bodies such as Natural England
  • the Environment Agency
  • water companies
  • local government environmental health departments
  • other environmental protection agencies

Additionally, government organisations and private firms provide openings for agricultural or environmental advisers.

The earth and environmental science sectors have been growing rapidly over the past decade and as a result, there's a high demand for graduates in this field. There are new employment areas in both the public and private sector.
