Environmental Sciences with a Year Abroad - University of East Anglia

**About This Course** What is the evidence for climate change? How does pollution affect human health and wellbeing? How are international environmental treaties formed? How can we reduce our energy consumption in the western world? What happens inside an erupting volcano? How do we treat these issues differently here and in other countries? If these are the sorts of questions that fascinate you, and if you want to study them to a high level with a view to possibly going on to a PhD, this advanced four-year integrated Master’s degree is for you. You will also have the chance to broaden your studies by spending a year studying at one of our partner institutions in Europe, US, Canada, Australia or New Zealand. 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 a global or local scale, has never been greater. This degree will help you become one of those 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. **Overview** This four-year course will see you cultivate a wide range of skills and knowledge, whilst discovering first-hand 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. Your third year will be spent at one of our partner institutions across the world, giving you a unique opportunity to experience another culture at the same time as broadening your academic and personal horizons. Whether you choose the US, Canada, Europe, Australia or New Zealand, you will study in a department that allows you to explore different aspects of your preferred subject. The chance to examine other countries in the context of your chosen subject is particularly useful in strengthening your employment prospects. You’ll then return to UEA for your fourth year when you will deepen your understanding and work at Master’s level. 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 ongoing commitment to developing the knowledge and skills gained in your degree. Our course is renowned for its quality and teaching excellence.
