Choosing Environmental Science

Environmental Science is an interdisciplinary subject providing for the study of the natural and man-made world.

The environment is described as a dynamic system composed of a number of interconnected processes and phenomena. These include the formation of rocks, the climate system, the cycling of biologically important elements and the interactions between organisms and their surroundings.

Environmental Science is a useful tool in assessing human impacts on our surroundings and enables a better understanding of the local, regional and global environmental issues that we face nowadays.

Detailed knowledge of the fundamental natural science subjects – Physics, Chemistry and Biology – is not required for the course.
