Environmental Sciences and International Development

Study the science of natural resources in the context of  development in poorer societies across the world where resources are used unfairly, unjustly or unsustainably. Combining natural and social sciences, this three-year course is taught across the School of Environmental Sciences and the School of International Development. Your balance between the two subjects will depend on the modules you choose in your second and final years.    You will study alongside Environmental Sciences and International Development students, as well as students from Geography and other specialist degrees that share common interests.       You’ll also have the opportunity to spend up to one semester overseas on the Development Work Placement module that runs in the autumn semester of your final year.   **Course Structure** 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.    **Year 1**  In your first year you’ll study alongside students in the School of International Development to get an introduction to Development Studies and natural resources and development – focusing on principles and concepts.     Your other modules (taken with Environmental Sciences students) will span the breadth of environmental sciences, from geoscience to ecology. You’ll also take modules to help you develop the research, field and quantitative skills you’ll need later in the course and in your career.   **Year 2** In your second year you’ll take a module in natural resources and development and then choose five more modules selected from the Schools of Environmental Sciences and International Development.    **Year 3**  In your final year, you’ll carry out a substantial piece of independent project work that is equivalent to two modules. You’ll have the choice of a more natural science-based or development-based topic and plan the work with the help of a supervisor from the appropriate School for your topic. By your final year, you’ll probably have developed a theme for your degree – whether that’s conservation, climate change or international security in the context of international development.   **Disclaimer** Course details are subject to change.
