Course content

The line that separates ecological and environmental sciences has become less distinct in recent years due to the increased demand for interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary work. This programme will give you an understanding of both these disciplines, as well as allowing you to integrate knowledge across these disciplines.

By taking this degree, you will be equipped with relevant skills in environmental policy, legislation, risk assessment models, environmental analytical instrumentation, understanding the use and implementation of environmental models, placing ecology within the landscape, looking at ecological niches and exploring how ecology impacts society.

These skills will make you an ideal candidate for positions within both the environmental science and ecological science sectors such as consultancies, regulators and NGOs. Furthermore, you will develop key research skills preparing you for a PhD and career in ecological and environmental research.
