    Overview

    Our environment is facing some serious challenges — from changing climates to habitat loss, environmental degradation, species extinction and overpopulation.

    Making efficient use of scarce resources for the management and conservation of the environment is a major challenge within the sphere of environmental science.

    This major combines knowledge in biology, chemistry, statistics and earth sciences for a multi-disciplinary approach to overcoming these challenges.

    You’ll also gain important skills in risk assessment and environmental monitoring, which are crucial to careers in consulting, environmental management and laboratory research.
