This degree examines the interactions between the geology, biology, chemistry and physics of the Earth’s surface, oceans and atmosphere. It gives you a deep understanding of the Earth’s environment and how it can be influenced by human activities. In years one and two you gain a firm grounding in earth sciences, building your knowledge to inform your choice of third-year options, which have recently included Oceanography, Economic Geology, and Climates and Ecosystems. Your third year also includes an independent field and laboratory project and an industry-standard environmental impact study. Our close links with industry ensure that the skills you gain during your studies are valued by employers. Recent partners have included Shell, Chevron, Reykjavik Energy, Atkins, Environmental Resources Management and EDF. We have a tightly knit community and a programme of student-run projects, informal seminars and social events. Our courses include field trips in the UK and overseas, the cost of which is included in your tuition fee. You will be invited on a field trip just before your first term starts, so you can get to know your year group before lectures begin. All our environmental geoscience degrees are accredited by the Geological Society of London, and transfers between courses may be possible.
