BSc Environment, Sustainability and Climate Change

Climate change and anthropogenic activities are threatening life on Earth. Lifelong environmental education has a role to play in making sustainability a central part of a global society. The United Nations Climate Change Learning Partnership acknowledges that given most children alive today will likely suffer the consequences of a changing climate, it makes sense that they should be prepared and be part of the race to “build capacity” towards sustainability. The course team has developed an excellent record in environmental research, particularly coastal and marine management and sustainability. These themes feed into the programme structure. The course also considers the conservation of environmental habitats and embedding green infrastructure and spaces in a city environment. Given Swansea’s location and local climate, the challenges of flooding provide an opportunity for students to engage with ‘soft’ or ‘natural’ engineering options. You will learn the science that underpins environmental issues and share information on key thematic issues with authorities and public groups alike. The course’s broad scope is the result of robust industrial engagement. The programme will help you build skills that are relevant to a wide range of employers, including critical thinking, the capacity to contextualise complex issues and the ability to present a coherent argument.
