Environmental Sciences with a year in Industry

**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? If these are the sorts of questions that fascinate you, this degree is for you. 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. You’ll also have the chance to put what you’ve learnt into practice and transform theory into reality by spending your third year working in industry, gaining invaluable experience and building your industry contacts. **Overview** This four-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. 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. And your year in industry will give you first-hand knowledge of your chosen field and generate crucial employer contacts which give you an advantage in the job market. 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.
