BSc (Hons) Environmental Science (Lancashire)
This degree programme focusses on the principles and practical applications of Environmental Science with an emphasis on field and laboratory-based study. Current issues such as natural and human-induced climate change, sustainable resource use, pollution control and decreasing biodiversity are just some of the subject areas covered by the course. Students are encouraged to develop a practical problem-solving approach to environmental issues and gain the experience and transferable skills necessary for employment and/or postgraduate study. The focus on graduate employability is reflected in a compulsory placement module and the option of a sandwich year in industry. Residential field trips are integral to the programme and include the opportunity for international travel (previous locations have included: Guyana, China, Poland and Kenya). The course also offers students a unique opportunity to study optional modules in Archaeology and Forensic Science.
