Environmental Science has grown out of an increasing concern for the environment and the need for a scientific approach to the study of human impact on natural resources. How do we meet our growing need for resources whilst safeguarding them for future generations?

Our course provides the necessary scientific grounding and technical training to investigate these problems and identify solutions. It leads directly to a postgraduate qualification, and is designed specifically for students who want to pursue a career in the environment sector. It offers an environmental placement and an industry-linked final-year project, equipping you with the key knowledge, skills and career awareness to succeed in environmental sciences.

This is the first Environmental Science MSci to be offered in Scotland, and is accredited by the Institution for Environmental Sciences.
