The course

Our Earth’s resources are limited, and factors including population expansion, global industrialisation and agriculture have stretched their ability to provide for our needs. Environmental geoscientists study the environmental and geological factors that have a direct impact on human existence, meaning that they’re the people we call on to solve these profound and far-reaching issues.
