Our climate and our environments are changing at unprecedented and alarming rates, with huge and often devastating consequences for our oceans and coasts, forests and farmlands, ecosystems and habitats, as well as threatening towns and cities, health and wellbeing, and the ways of life of present and future generations. Forging effective local and global responses to this planetary crisis and societal emergency will require students who understand the profound interconnection of environmental science and social science, and who can use their wealth of academic, laboratory, and fieldwork training to act boldly, and deliver the next generation of adaptations, mitigations, and solutions. The teaching programme places a strong emphasis on active and practical learning, problem solving and authentic assessment, and fieldwork both in the UK and internationally. Students graduating from this programme will have the knowledge and skills suitable for a wide range of careers including environmental and ecological consultancy, government bodies, insurance and risk management, non-governmental organisations, urban planning, transport agencies and renewable energy sectors.
