Environmental Science

**Why choose this course?** Environmental Science is a broad field that encompasses aspects of ecology and physical science to evaluate environmental issues and propose appropriate solutions. If you have an interest in the environment and in applying scientific principles to help solve environmental problems this course is for you. This flexible, interdisciplinary course allows you to follow a programme with modules drawn from across the subject of environmental science. You are then able to specialise in particular areas of interest in the second and third year or continue to study a more varied programme. We use field and lab based activities to ensure that you develop a range of scientific concepts and theories that are transferable and sought after in a variety of employment areas. You will have various opportunities for visits and for fieldwork and there is an opportunity in the second year to undertake an optional residential field trip overseas. Previous field trips have included Mallorca and Tenerife, but please note there is an additional charge to cover flights, accommodation and transport which in 2016 was £550. Examples of previous UK visits include Oxford Botanic Garden, Kew Gardens, the Natural History Museum, as well as field sites in and around Northamptonshire. **By studying at the University of Northampton, you can be sure that:** - Students enrolling on this course at Northampton will be provided with their own brand new Hewlett Packard laptop* to keep at no additional cost.
