Module overview

This module is designed to provide you with hands-on experience of a wide range of contemporary environmental issues and techniques, and an understanding of how we make use of data to answer environment related research questions. The module is primarily delivered during a residential field trip (prevailing circumstances permitting). During the first part of the trip, you will visit different environments and learn key data collection strategies. The second part of the trip will involve undertaking a group research project, which offers you the opportunity to put into practice the skills learnt across the core Environmental Science curriculum from your first year.
