    What is the programme about?
    This programme covers a broad range of topics aimed at addressing key environmental concerns. Students will have the opportunity to explore the linkage between the science and the management of the environment. Throughout the programme, students will develop skills in practical lab work, field work, computing and Geographic Information Systems (GIS). Subjects on professional development are also included – soft skills that are much sought after by employers. Students will learn about ecology and conservation of the natural environment as well as how to manage resources like waste and energy in business. People with an interest in geography, biology, chemistry, agricultural science and wildlife will find this an exciting course of study.
