Environmental science at Sheffield combines rigorous academic study with plenty of practical experience. You will have the chance to take part in field classes in the UK, Europe, Africa and North America. All compulsory field trips are free. You can specialise – in global change, environmental biosciences or environmental geosciences – or you can take a more general course. You spend your third year studying at a partner university overseas. The Department of Geography has over 30 full-time academics covering topics in human and physical geography. Our facilities include an environment centre in the Peak District and a field centre in Tanzania. We teach this course with colleagues in the Department of Animal and Plant Sciences – the Times Good University Guide has put Sheffield in the UK top 5 for biosciences every year since 2009.

They work all over the world, in sectors including local and national government, business, sustainability and environmental consultancy.
