BSc Environmental Science: About

WHY STUDY ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCE?

- By studying Environmental Science at Ulster you will gain the knowledge and skills to address issues such as climate change, conserving animal and plant diversity, environmental impacts of development and the management of water and air pollution. If you enjoy science or geography and have an interest in environmental issues, this course is for you.


- We teach with a cross-disciplinary approach, so that you will learn to understand the complex behaviour of environmental systems. Our degree in environmental science has diverse ranges of practical applications; from assessing drinking water quality, studying processes that cause coastal erosion, investigating agricultural pollution sources, to mapping shrinking glaciers and ice sheets from space.


- At this time of unprecedented environmental change on planet Earth, society is having to adapt to processes and hazards that are poorly understood. Now, more than ever, society needs STEM graduates with an inter-disciplinary understanding of the complexity and uncertainty of Earth systems, and with the skills to observe, measure, model and manage these systems. Our environmental science degree at Ulster spans biology, chemistry, geology and physics of the terrestrial, atmospheric and freshwater systems.
