The environment is a major focus of teaching within the School and Geography is central to this. Furthermore, we have been teaching forestry at Bangor for more than 110 years, and there has never been a more exciting time to enter the profession. This degree combines developing an understanding of the physical processes that shape the world with understanding relationship between humankind and the environment and how sustainable management of environmental resources can benefit society. The world’s forests, vital to the global ecosystem and covering 30% of the world’s land area, are key to this. On this course students develop knowledge and transferable skills across traditional subject boundaries and will be prepared for the challenge of managing forests for the many benefits they provide, at a time of global environmental change. Our courses place an emphasis on field visits and fieldwork as well as opportunities to enhance employability through professional placements and skills.
