Environmental Science - University of Manchester

The BSc in Environmental Science is a three-year degree that offers you the flexibility to tailor your interest in Environmental Science in one of three areas of specialisation: Pollution and Environmental Processes; Atmospheric Science; and Ecology, Evolution and Conservation Biology. The degree includes extensive field and practical training, with UK and overseas field courses in every year of study. A BSc honours degree in Environmental Science at The University of Manchester is focused on a holistic understanding of Earth systems in order to learn from the past, understand the present and influence the future. Environmental Science is the study of how physical, chemical and biological processes maintain and interact with life, and includes the study of how humans affect nature.
