Environmental Sciences (with Education)

The environment supports all aspects of our daily life but is also the source of some of the most complex and wide-ranging challenges facing human society today. The need for people who can help us respond to these challenges, whether at global or local scale, has never been greater.  This degree will help you become one of these essential people. You will explore how the components of the natural environment function and how they are affected by, and affect, our society, politics and culture. You’ll also learn how to inspire learning in others through your education modules, empowering you to make a difference to the next generation.  This three-year course will see you cultivate a wide range of skills and knowledge, whilst discovering how you can be the change you want to see in 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.    As you progress through the course, you will have a guaranteed placement in a local secondary school. You will have a range of options to choose from in environmental sciences. In addition, you can choose modules from the School of Education to further your understanding of education. This means you that you can tailor your course to your specific interests.    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 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 the fields of environmental sciences and education in your second and third years, allowing you to direct your own studies.    **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, as well as in maths or quantitative skills-based modules. You’ll also be able to get involved in extracurricular education and science communication activity.    **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. You will also complete a compulsory education work placement module.   **Year 3** You’ll undertake two independent research projects – one in environmental sciences and one in education. You will investigate your specialist areas in professional depth with one-to-one support from your academic supervisors.    Alongside this, you’ll study modules from a range that spans all areas of Environmental Sciences, including options 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.
