BSc (Hons) Environmental Science

Environmental Scientists are needed more than ever by industry, government, and society. This degree brings together a wide range of subjects to explore the most important environmental issues, such as climate change, pollution, renewable energy, and food security. This degree covers biology (giving you an understanding of organisms, their environments, and their communities), chemistry (providing an understanding of many natural environmental processes and pollution), earth science (giving you a background in global processes), and land and water resource management. This combination of subject areas, combined with many practical sessions and field trips, creates a degree that is both fascinating and rewarding.Our location makes Bangor an ideal place to study Environmental Science as there is access to a wide range of natural environments ranging from the coast, to the varied landscape of Snowdonia National Park with its long history of multiple land use, mining, and quarrying.

As well as local trips, we have residential trips further afield.We have close links with local, national, and international organisations that employ environmental scientists, helping us to ensure that our degree is relevant and up to date.This degree is accredited by the Institution of Environmental Science (IES).
