If you’re passionate about the environment and sustainability, and want to make a difference, our undergraduate degree course is for you.
It’s designed to teach you the fundamentals of environmental science and give you practical skills in environmental data management.
Together, we’ll explore human impact on the environment and ways to manage these interactions sustainably, as well as learning various aspects of data processing and interpretation including remote sensing.
You’ll enjoy a hands-on, project-based learning experience from day one. Through individual and group work, you’ll use your knowledge to address environmental problems in industry – and society in general.
As a student at ARU Peterborough, you’ll cover topics such as global environment-related challenges, environmental science and monitoring, environmental management concepts, environmental policy, legislation and regulation and environmental health and safety.
In particular, we focus on developing problem-solving skills and strategies for addressing environmental challenges that are needed in a broad range of fields, such as the production and manufacturing industry, consulting, management, environmental protection, local and central government, the media, international organisations, teaching, research and academia.
Throughout the course you’ll find there’s an emphasis on developing important transferable skills. These include the design and implementation of environment-focused assessments, data science and management skills for problem solving, project management, and professional report writing. You can also choose to enhance your employability even further with an optional placement year in industry.
This is a new course starting in September 2022 and is subject to validation.
