What is the programme about?

This programme covers a broad range of topics aimed at addressing key environmental concerns. Students will have the opportunity to explore the linkage between the science and the management of the environment and will develop an in-depth scientific knowledge of the earth’s systems, namely the biosphere, hydrosphere, geosphere and the atmosphere. New approaches to balancing the needs of the environment, economy and society in moving towards long term sustainability are a key focus for the programme.

There is lots of practical lab work, field work, field trips and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) sessions. Subjects on professional development are also included – soft skills that are much sought after by employers. A work placement during the summer of third year provides students with a valuable opportunity to gain experience in the increasingly important environmental sector. A dissertation in fourth year allows students to specialise and follow their own research interests.

Who is the programme suited to?

​Do you like to explore the wonders of environmental science and the great outdoors? Do the challenges of protecting the environment interest you? Are you studying subjects such as biology, geography, agricultural science or chemistry at school? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, this may be the programme for you!

Programme Aims:

​One of the key aims of the programme is to provide students with the opportunity to explore the linkage between the science and management of the environment. In order to achieve this, the programme has been structured to ensure that students get an in-depth scientific knowledge of the earth’s systems, namely the biosphere, hydrosphere, geosphere and the atmosphere. Simultaneously, students will develop practical competencies to allow them to carry out research on the environment, whether in the laboratory, in the field or in the library. A three month work placement during the summer of third year provides a valuable opportunity for students to gain experience in the environmental sector and help them identify career options for the future.​
