About the Environmental and Analytical Science (Hons) course at University of Huddersfield

Understanding the impact of human activities on our environment is essential to protecting it for future generations.

  • You'll have the chance to study a range of subjects including biogeography, inorganic and organic chemistry, earth processes, landscape and fluvial systems, climate science and sustainability before specialising in your final year.
  • In the third year of the course you’ll have the opportunity to benefit from a work placement. This could help you to gain relevant real-world experience and give you a head start in your chosen career. In the final year you’ll have the chance to develop and hone your independent research skills as part of the research project module.
  • We also firmly believe in ‘learning through doing’ and since fieldwork is an integral part of any environmental scientists training, we’ve embedded field-trips throughout all years of study.
  • All our teaching staff are educated to doctoral level and have expertise in a range of environmental and analytical subject areas.
