During the Environmental Science (Hons) programme of The University of Nottingham Malaysia students will develop an understanding of environmental processes and systems and gain skills in a range of ecological survey techniques through practical classes and field courses. Topics covered include key environmental principles such as atmospheric and climate sciences, biogeochemistry, conservation biology, ecology, environmental modelling, geospatial mapping and technologies, and sustainable development. Your final year research project will utilise and further advance these skills and you will also benefit from gaining knowledge and practical experience of issues and techniques applicable both to Southeast Asia and global environments.
In addition to key principles, theories and current knowledge in environmental science, the modules offered will allow you to develop skills in the collection, processing and analysis of environmental data, and in scientific analysis and communication for the development and evaluation of policy. You will also undertake practical training in the techniques of environmental management.
Exposure to a wide range of perspectives on environmental processes and issues can play an important part in your academic development and career prospects. As a result we have designed the course to enable you to study modules contributed by other Schools, including the School of Geography, in addition to those within the School of Biosciences.
