Environmental Social Sciences with a year in Professional Practice

Our Environmental Social Sciences degree programme focuses on the environment from the perspective of the social sciences and humanities. You are encouraged to engage with a variety of environmental understandings from a range of subjects, including: anthropology, politics, economics, philosophy, law, history, literature and the creative arts. You can also develop practical skills (for example biodiversity monitoring) and can choose to do an independent research project on a subject largely of your choice. In addition to compulsory modules covering social science approaches to environmental issues and environmental politics, policy and practice, you can also choose modules covering biodiversity and ecological sciences, the foundations of human culture, creative conservation and environmental law. You can also develop practical skills (for example biodiversity monitoring in Borneo) and can choose to do an independent research project on a subject largely of your choice.
