Natural history is the study of organisms and the environments in which they live. This is a diverse and exciting subject that covers the study of animals, plants and their environments, along with earth and environmental sciences.
You’ll study diﬀerent organisms – how they are identified, their life history, relationships, behaviour and conservation. You'll also understand the processes that shape our land, coastlines and climate.
You’ll explore the diversity of life, wildlife management for conservation, animal biology, geo-sciences and environmental survey skills. You'll also develop skills in experimental design, ecological surveying and field research techniques, and data analysis.
By graduation, those with a Natural History (Hons) degree at University of South Wales will have the professional skills to work for national parks, nature reserves, environmental and planning consultancies, national and international wildlife bodies, national, regional and local government, utility companies and regulatory agencies. Your analytical skills will give you excellent prospects in research and policy development. You can even make wildlife films to gain career options in visual media and environmental education. Typical roles include:
- Environmental Consultant
