We offer innovative degree programmes and courses at undergraduate level.
We welcome applications for the new MA Sustainable Development, a multi-disciplinary honours degree programme on sustainability. Commencing in September 2011, new core courses for the degree, are 'Introducing Sustainable Development' and 'Perspectives on Sustainable Development'. Students will also be able to choose from a wide range of optional courses in Social and Political Science, Business, Geography and Economics.
This series of lectures provides a broad understanding of global issues and the role that academic research plays in meeting these challenges. The unique format offers an excellent opportunity for students, staff, and the public to engage with world-class researchers based at the University.
Environmental and Community Biology is a first-year course that features a unique opportunity for hands-on learning. Resources from this award-winning course are available to educators on a new website.
Open to all students during Semester Two, Environmental and Community Biology covers global climate change and its effects on biodiversity, sustainability and food security, biological interactions, conservation and human ecology.
This course will enable students to devise their own set of principles for understanding sustainability issues which should be of value in decision-making in their future careers.
This course considers the way that science and technology shape the relationship between humans and the environment. We examine a number of historical and contemporary cases and, in the process, reflect on the role played by science and technology in mediating our understanding of nature and the environment.
