This joint degree allows you to pursue science in the context of international development. For example, you could take modules in Earth science, climate science or oceanography alongside modules about how natural hazards, climate or loss of biodiversity affect some of the most vulnerable human societies on Earth. You could study hydrology or water resources in Environmental Sciences alongside modules in the School of International Development on the impacts of water scarcity on the livelihoods of people in Sub-Saharan Africa or Latin America. Throughout this degree, you will gain understanding and insight into both environmental and development issues, how these may act together and what we could do to increase the resilience and well-being of developing communities. During your first year, you will study physical and social sciences, focusing on both the theory and practical aspects of development. In your second and third years you will be able to choose modules from both Schools. You may combine your final-year research project with a semester working with a development project of your choosing. Destinations have included Fiji, Mauritius, Vietnam, India, Peru, Mexico, Mongolia, Thailand, Nepal, Kenya and many more.
