Environmental science combines parts of different subject areas, like biology, physics, geography, ecology, and more. During a degree in environmental science, you’ll learn about the natural world and how humans are impacting the environment. You’ll therefore look at topics like climate change, pollution levels, sustainability and conservation, while learning in classroom settings as well as in the field and lab. Preserving nature and the environment has become one of the world’s leading priorities in recent times and the surrounding issues are likely to stay in the public eye for decades to come. Therefore, there’s never been a better time to get into environmental science and studying the subject at uni will give you the skills and knowledge needed to pursue several relevant career paths in areas like environmental engineering, environmental education, preservation, conservation and marine biology.
