Do you care about the environment and the future of our planet? By doing this course you will gain a thorough scientific understanding of how planet earth functions. Much human activity has resulted in serious environmental problems. These range from air and water pollution to species extinction. You will study the technical solutions to these specific issues.
I did all three earth sciences and they worked really well for my future degree in Environmental Science.
Here are some of the topics we cover:
- Captive breeding programmes using Paignton Zoo as a resource
- The role of oceans in global climatic change using the National Marine Aquarium as a resource
- Marine conservation
- Fisheries and Forestry management
- Farming theory utilising the college farm test plots
There is no coursework but fieldwork is an essential part of the course and the techniques are assessed within exams.
