Environmental Studies A Level at Strode College
Environmental Studies is fundamental to our existence. The central theme involves developing an understanding of how different events and cycles within the natural and anthropogenic world catalyse, function and interrelate. What is our place in the world and if we are the guardians of the planet, how might we better perform those duties responsibly?
The subject covers marine biology, geography and ecology along with other earth and physical sciences. Areas of study will include biodiversity, conservation and ecological relationships; exploitation of physical resources; the problems of energy supply and environmental damage by pollutants; and human population growth in relation to the demands placed upon the planet's resources.
The course complements Biology, Chemistry, Geography, Geology and Sociology. Students study a range of other subjects, so lessons are lively with many perspectives. There will be many opportunities for laboratory experiments, practical fieldwork and site visits such as waste recycling centres, water treatment works, power stations and local centres of biodiversity. You may be able to join Geology students on an optional field trip to Iceland.
5 GCSEs at grades A* - C or equivalent including grade C or above in Maths and English Language.
