Environmental Sciences

This three-year course will see you cultivate a wide range of skills and knowledge, whilst discovering how you can make a difference to our world. You will have the opportunity to build a degree that suits your interests, focusing your studies on one theme or constructing a more varied profile as you wish.    You’ll also gain important field skills and have the chance to put them into practice on field trips to locations such as Spain, Ireland or Greece, as well as the UK. Upon graduation you will be well equipped to follow one of a wide range of environmental careers or use your skills to pursue other graduate opportunities.    You will be joining one of Europe’s best-respected Environmental Science schools and a degree programme that is accredited by the Institution of Environmental Sciences (IES). That means that on graduating, you will be eligible for Associate Membership of the IES, giving you access to networking and professional development opportunities.    After graduating you may choose to progress to a Chartered Environmentalist (CEnv) or Chartered Scientist (CSci) status. This will demonstrate to employers your commitment to continuing to develop the knowledge and skills gained in your degree.    Our course is renowned for its quality and teaching excellence. We scored 97% for overall satisfaction in Physical Geography and Environmental Science in the 2017 National Student Survey.   **Course Structure** This three-year degree programme begins with a year of compulsory modules to establish your knowledge on essential topics. You will then select from optional modules in your second and third years, allowing you to direct your own studies and take as broad or focused a path as you wish. In your final year you will also undertake an independent research project on a subject of your choice.   **Year 1** Our core compulsory modules will introduce you to the general scientific principles that govern our environment, and how they interact in some of the major challenges facing global society today. You’ll develop your technical skills within the Research and Field Skills module, as well as in maths or quantitative skills-based modules.    **Year 2**  With a solid foundation built, you will now enjoy the freedom to tailor your course around your own interests. You will learn from research leaders in a range of modules across the broad areas of earth sciences, atmospheres and oceans, ecology, energy and social sciences – as well as interdisciplinary and skills-based modules.    **Year 3** In your final year research project you’ll investigate a specialist area in professional depth with one-to-one support from an academic supervisor. You will select a further four modules from a range that again spans all areas of Environmental Sciences, including topics such as climate systems, geophysical hazards and environmental consultancy. Third year field courses available to you will include Geosciences (Spain, Ireland or Greece, depending on the year) and Environmental Sciences (Spain).   **Disclaimer** Course details are subject to change.
