Immerse yourself in this diverse field with a degree that reflects the wealth of leading environmental science experts at UEA. Get a broad grounding in the subject and specialise in the areas of your choice. Benefit from an emphasis on the interdisciplinary skills needed to explore and solve today’s environmental problems. You will develop your core scientific skills through field, laboratory and classroom study of global environmental challenges. First-year options cover the Earth as a dynamic physical system, the interplay between sustainable development and biodiversity, and the crucial chemical and physical processes that shape the Earth. Then you will tailor your degree according to your interests, choosing from a substantial range of modules covering all areas of the environmental sciences. Options range from geology to ecology and from oceanography to human society and economics. In your third year, you will undertake an independent research project that matches your interests and select from specialised modules and field courses. This four-year programme culminates with a fourth year of Master’s modules. You will also complete a substantial piece of independent research, supervised by a member of faculty active in environmental research. Optional modules cover advanced topics such as the science and policy implications of climate geoengineering; sustainable consumption; modelling of environmental and ecological processes using computers, statistics and geographical information systems; and the science and management of environmental pollution. This course is accredited by the Institution of Environmental Sciences (IES) That means you will be eligible for Associate Membership of the IES upon graduation, with the opportunity to achieve Chartered Environmentalist (CEnv) or Chartered Scientist (CSci) status.
