Course programme

This three year degree programme begins with a year of compulsory core modules to establish your knowledge on essential topics. You will have the chance to select from optional modules in the second and final years to allow you to direct your own studies. In the final year you will also have the opportunity to undertake an independent research project on a subject of your choice.

Year 1
A series of compulsory modules introduce you to the major global environmental challenges facing mankind, with an emphasis on climate change. Multi-disciplinary modules from the School of Environmental Science enable you to develop the essential analytical skills you will need during further years – including Maths for Scientists and Sustainability in Society.

Year 2
As the course progresses you will be given greater freedom to tailor your course around your own interests, as you choose from a large catalogue of optional modules. Compulsory modules begin to diverge from core science towards the wider implications of climate change.

Year 3
Your third year of study is centred around a large individual research project, allowing you to investigate a specialist area in depth. You will also study a range of advanced modules to continue to develop your knowledge and expertise.
