Climate Change is a very broad, interdisciplinary area of research so it depends on what angle you want to approach it from. If you're interested in the biological side then a biological degree like Biology or Environmental Science or Biology with Ecology would be absolutely fine.(Original post by jenniwales)
I've just finished my GCSEs so I've been spending my free time researching uni's and degrees and I can't seem to find a lot on information on the best degree suited for a career in climate change. At the moment, it seems to me like Zoology consists of what I'm interested in but I'm not entirely sure about it all.
Ideally, I'd love a job where I could conduct research and do expeditions based on climate change development and how it affects ecosystems etc. however there is barely any information on careers in climate change!
Would anyone be able to tell me any information on jobs, degrees etc in climate change and what I can do now to add to a university application (i.e. Extra curricular activities etc)
As Plagioclase has stated, it's very broad and totally depends on what area.
Universities offer Meteorology and Climate as a BSc degree program, but it can be quite maths heavy and not so much biology.
Not entirely relevant, but check out SimonOxfPhys on Youtube. He's an Oxford Graduate and current phd student with a Physics background who's got into climate change (I think atmospheric physics?) It just highlights how broad the subject area is.
