    About the course:
    This is a four-year full-time degree course. The four years are broken down as follows:

    Year One: learning and developing essential background knowledge of mathematics, chemistry, physics and biology that are the basis for a career in environmental science. The first field trip occurs in semester 2.

    Year Two: building on the four areas of study in year one from an environmental viewpoint, as well as developing IT and computing skills. Modules include Microbiology and Genetics, Pollution and Biosphere, Water Chemistry and Environmental Analysis. Field trips in several subjects.

    Year Three: Climate Change science is introduced, and the study of climate is encouraged through fieldwork and modules such as Environmental Monitoring & Data Analysis. Students continue to develop in environmental aspects of biotechnology, chemistry and physics. Modules include Atmospheric and Aquatic Science and students have the opportunity to gain experience on a paid work (INTRA) placement. This placement can be anywhere that is environmentally relevant. Practical work is conducted in laboratories and through onsite and field trip visits.

    Year Four: Specialized modules include Toxicology, Meteorology, Renewable Energy, Soil and Waste Management. Additionally, students will carry out a semester-long research project, with environmentally relevant topics offered from across the entire Science and Health faculty.
