About the course

This two year accelerated degree allows you to think like an environmentalist, studying a broad range of environmental issues. This includes the impacts of climate change, pollution and air quality.

What will I study?

You will study the challenges of dealing with our waste and meeting the competing demands and sustainability of our natural resources. This very current degree examines the environmental issues that impact us all, with topics such as conservation, sustainable development, resources, energy and waste management, and pollution control being covered. A combination of theory, practice, and a work placement will give you the chance to find workable solutions to current and future environmental problems. In the final semester you will produce a major project to focus your studies and prepare for applying for employment.

This course will be validated in 2021-22 and will be applying for accreditation by the Chartered Institute of Ecology and Environmental Management (CIEEM).
