    Ecology and Global Change Management, BSc Hons
  • Course description
    Global ecological change caused by human activities has led to an increasing awareness that the earth’s natural resources are limited. To ensure a sustainable source of the basic raw materials for human survival – food, water and shelter – our natural resources must be managed according to fundamental ecological principles. These issues affect every continent and can best be addressed, through a One-World approach that recognises the global importance of all natural resources. Many countries around the world have set time-bound targets for reducing carbon emissions, and therefore, new jobs and business opportunities are being created every day, increasing the demand for people who are well-educated and trained in practical skills necessary to achieve these targets.

    The Natural Resources Institute is renowned internationally for its accomplishments in the promotion of economic and social development in both developing and developed countries, through sustainable use of natural resources. This degree targets A-level students of biology, ecology, geography, environmental science, economics, business studies and social sciences, and mature students who want to advance their knowledge in these disciplines or who want a career change
