The Centre for Environmental Sciences (CES) is a collaborative enterprise operating across the University, with inputs from other science disciplines in Biological Sciences, Geography, and Ocean & Earth Science, as well as CES's home, Engineering and the Environment.
The Centre is the University hub for undergraduate and taught postgraduate degrees and courses in environmental science. We act as a focal point for interdisciplinary research, providing links between traditional subject boundaries and seeking sound, well-founded solutions to environmental science problems.
We offer both three-year (BSc) and four-year (MEnvSci) degrees in environmental science. In each degree course, students follow a common core with specific subject pathways available in the contributing disciplines. Southampton is consistently ranked among the top 10 UK institutions for environmental science at undergraduate level, and has an annual intake of about 60 students.
The masters degrees complement these courses, providing the knowledge and skills necessary for a career in the environmental science sector.
We are pleased to offer supervision for students undertaking doctoral (PhD) research in environmental science. Our interdisciplinary focus enables them to integrate different aspects of their research through collaboration with academic staff working in complementary fields.
CES carries out research under the auspices of the Environment Research Group. Our research activities encompass many areas, although there is a common focus on the impacts and management of human activities on the natural environment.
