    You could pick the one which is the least specialised, so that you are flexible in choosing your modules. Maybe Physical Geography?

    ...not sure if that was sarcastic or just incredibly naïve. No degree guarantees a job. Every man and his dog has a degree these days, you need much more than that to demonstrate your employability

    Environmental Sciences on the basis that is has the word science in it.

    The others have geography and management which are laughable subjects.

    Definitely Environmental Science, it's a proper science subject unlike the other three.

    Edit: I'm not saying the others aren't good subjects or proper subjects, but Environmental Science is definitely more scientific than the others, that's all I'm trying to say, I'm only answering the OPs question.

    How isn't Physical Geography a 'proper subject'? If I were you, I would either do a Geography, Econ or combined Econ/Geog degree. Try not to specialise unless you're certain what you want to do.

    "By contrast, geography and psychology graduates had a better than average chance of getting work - some 7.4% and 8.3% were out of a job respectively."

    It doesn't say a job related to the degree. Just 'work'. Most of them probably work in the crayons section in art shops.

    It wasn't sarcastic AT ALL
    If you are good and you like the subject and the field, you will find a job.
    Unfortunately there is a lot of competition outside, so the only the good and very good survive...

    TBH none of those are respected, just go straight into work uni probably isn't for you and it's a waste of funding for students who want to do a proper subject.

    thus meaning getting a degree doesn't mean you will 'DEFINITELY get a good job'

    See, I wanted to say Environmental Sciences because of the use of 'Sciences' which means it encompasses more than one scientific field: physics, geology, biology, chemistry, and geography should be included in this interdisciplinary field called 'Environmental Sciences' and they would be applied to the environment and environmental problems.

    As for which is actually the most respected, I don't know. But I think it would be Environmental Sciences.

    Environmental science tbh, or physical geography. You'd study most of the same modules anyway, but you'd do a few biology modules aswell with environmental science depending on the course.
