Environmental science explores the complexities of the natural environment and our relationship with it. This specialist route, available in our #BSc (Hons) Natural Sciences [Q64]#, takes a holistic approach to the science of our environment investigating topics such as global warming, water resources, pollution and conservation. Our environment is fascinating - but it's under threat from climate change, biodiversity loss and resource depletion. Explore the consequences and implications of environmental change for sustainability from a scientific perspective, by learning about the processes, links and interactions operating in different environments.
