Years 1 and 2 will give you the basic knowledge and analytical skills in Environmental Science, Geoscience, Ecology and Physical Geography that underpin the degree.
In Year 3, you can choose from more specialised modules in Environmental Systems, Environmental Management and Environmental Technologies.
In Year 4, the choice of advanced modules continues with a wide range of subjects available. There is an emphasis on career development and employability skills, with core modules in professional development and a placement. You'll also organise and present at a symposium on environmental careers for students in earlier years.
In your final year, you'll undertake a significant piece of independent research in partnership with an environmental organisation, and also choose from a range of specialist environmental management modules focused on the energy, conservation and environmental sectors.
The course is accredited by the Institute of Environmental Sciences, which provides you with free IES membership and another step along the path to a career as an environmental scientist.
