Environmental Studies at Sir Isaac Newton Sixth Form Free School

Course description

Studying A Level Environmental Studies will give you in-depth knowledge of, and informed insight into the environment and the scientific processes that control and affect it. Key aspects that you will study include areas such as ‘Wildlife Conservation’, ‘Pollution’, ‘Global Climate Change’ and ‘Sustainability’.

The central theme of Environmental Studies is the development of an understanding of how different events and cycles within the environment interrelate, how they influence subsequent environmental events, the human impacts on these events and cycles, and the strategies that we can use to minimise the problems caused. Environmental Studies is a worthwhile choice for students who are particularly interested in studying Biology, Geography and Environmental Science or who are considering a career in ecology, countryside management, wildlife conservation, marine biology and planning.
