Are you fascinated by the interactions between physical and ecological systems, and how these relate to human activity?
This interdisciplinary degree draws on the expertise of two schools – Geography and Biological and Chemical Sciences – to offer a distinctive programme.
You'll explore themes such as ecology, diversity and evolution, conservation, environmental pollution, river science and environmental engineering. In the process you'll develop advanced practical skills by analysing samples and simulating environmental processes in our state-of-the-art laboratories.
Explore the world with us on fieldwork in places such as the Netherlands , Canada, Croatia and South Africa, as well as UK-based fieldwork, including opportunities right here in London.
Option modules in the second and final years allow you to direct your study towards your aims and interests. In the final year you'll design your own project with guidance from our experts, developing the skills to become a researcher in your own right.
