The Environmental Science (Hons) course from Manchester Metropolitan University combines aspects of physical and life sciences, helping you build an understanding of environmental issues today. You’ll also gain a wide range of practical and analytical skills, working in the lab and the field. 


The world around us is changing – and our environmental science degree will help you understand how. You’ll learn the skills and knowledge to measure, model and assess environmental change and its impact. Developed with employers, including environmental agencies and private businesses, this is a programme with real-world relevance, built around developing the techniques and expertise you’ll find in the workplace.

By the time you graduate, you’ll be able to collect, process and analyse data from a range of sources across different scientific disciplines – giving you the understanding to make informed recommendations in a professional context.


Environmental science graduates may go on to a variety of subject-specific careers in the environmental and sustainability industries, in consultancies and environmental services, or in teaching or research. Recent graduates have found employment across a wide range of sectors including environmental consultancies, public utilities, local authorities, industrial research laboratories, and conservation organisations. The Environmental Science (Hons) course from Manchester Metropolitan University is designed to equip you with transferable skills that may also be applied to non-subject-specific career pathways such as in management, local government, teaching or the civil service.
