Course Information

This course offers you an opportunity to study some of the most pressing environmental issues of our time, including biodiversity loss, climate change, invasive species, land-use change, pollution, food security and water scarcity. Most of these issues are fundamentally ecological in nature and hence the course has a very strong focus on ecological theory, application and management. Topics on biological conservation, ecological monitoring, habitat management and restoration, environmental law, ecological economics, ecological impact assessment, as well as assessment of environmental quality, are all included.

Our Environmental Management and Ecology degree is designed to develop a wide range of management and ecological skills and to give students practical field experience, with an option of a work placement or a year of study abroad.

Our students have the distinct advantage of our Bayfordbury field station with laboratory facilities and a wide range of habitats (woodlands, grassland, lakes, ponds, rivers, parkland, glasshouses plus an apiary). This provides students with the amenities in which to conduct surveys and carry out research in addition to gaining practical conservation skills with the management of the site.

The course equips you to learn how we can tackle some of the world’s biggest issues including:

  • Habitat degradation and destruction
  • Biodiversity loss
  • Climate change
  • Scarcity of water
  • Environmental pollution
