This interdisciplinary degree draws upon the expertise of the School of Geography and the School of Biological and Chemical Sciences to offer a distinctive degree programme. You will have the chance to explore a wide range of themes including ecology, diversity and evolution, conservation, environmental pollution, river science and environmental engineering. You will undertake core training in environmental science research skills and techniques both in the field and the laboratory. There is a substantial fieldwork programme, with destinations including the UK, Florida (USA), New Zealand, Croatia and South Africa.

We have a range of compulsory and optional modules available from the Schools of Geography and Biological and Chemical Sciences across all years of this degree programme, to help students establish a necessary grounding in the discipline.
