Hull’s growth as a hub in this developing field means there are few places better to study the subject. Our degree will give you a deep understanding of the complex forces shaping our planet. You'll gain a thorough theoretical and practical grounding in the elaborate nature of environmental systems, and our relationship with them.
You'll spend much of your time 'learning by doing'. Whether that's analysing samples in the lab. Or developing digital skills such as in Geographical Information Systems (GIS). Or on field trips to destinations like Brazil, Egypt and Mallorca.1 And it’s all backed up by lectures and seminars with experts in biology, geography and earth science.
You can specialise in specific ecological, chemical or physical aspects of the environment. And choose your own research project on a topic you love, supported by specialist modules. Plus, you can learn to dive alongside your degree. So you'll graduate with even more specialist skills like underwater navigation and photography.2
