Bachelor Degree , Environmental Sciences

Course Description

This degree is professionaly accredited by the Institution of Environmental Sciences.

Environmental Scientists are needed more than ever by industry, government and society. This environmental science degree course brings together information from a wide range of subjects to explore some of the most important environmental issues, such as climate change, pollution, conservation, and food security.

This environmental science degree is broadly based with its roots in 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. A combination of such subject areas, combined with many practical sessions and field trips, creates a degree that is both fascinating and rewarding.
