The mixture of applied science and theoretical work on this course places you in a valuable position for understanding the procedures and applications in modern environmental science.
A number of laboratory classes allows you to familiarise yourself with the current analytical instrumentation in environmental science.
The course uses examples of environmental issues allowing you to understand the problem, how the analysis was conducted and the implications of the results. The main assessment in this course is a practical write up that is written in the style of a scientific report giving you an opportunity to perfect this style of writing.
