Environmental sciences study the effects of processes in nature, regardless of their cause and analyse how physical elements interact and what consequences these actions have. Some of its most important sub-fields of study are biology, ecology, physics, zoology, chemistry, mineralogy and soil sciences.
A Bachelor’s degree in environmental sciences also includes social studies that focus on human interactions and relationships and their impact on the environment. These aspects lead to development of policies that protect the planet’s activity. Once students enrol in a Master’s degree in environmental sciences, they will have the possibility to specialize in policy development, natural resources management or GIS (geographic information system).
Careers in environmental sciences are diverse and, most of the time, include both desk and field work. Graduates can become environmental education or recycling officers, environmental managers or health practitioners, toxicologists, landscape architect and transport planners.Read more View all Distance Learning courses in Environmental Sciences
