The applied nature of the subject ensures that topics closely relate to everyday issues and current affairs, helping you make sense of the science behind the headlines. If you have a keen interest in the principles of Ecology and issues like global warming, population growth, deforestation and energy sources then Environmental Studies will provide a stimulating forum for debate.
