Environmental Science with Business Management

Overview

Study environmental science while making yourself work-ready with skills in business management.

You’ll have access to the resources of three top Queen Mary schools – Geography, Biological and Chemical Sciences, and Business and Management – drawing on the strengths of each as you develop both environmental expertise and business acumen.

You’ll investigate the relationships between physical and ecological systems and how these relate to human activity, covering topics such as evolution, climate change, environmental pollution and river science.

You’ll spend time in our state-of-the-art labs, analysing samples and simulating environmental processes. In the final year you’ll design your own project with guidance from our experts, developing the skills to become a researcher in your own right.

You’ll also build practical skills for the corporate world by studying economics, management, marketing, human resources and financial accounting.

You will participate in UK-based fieldwork and will have the option to go on international field trips, for example to the Netherlands, Canada, Croatia or South Africa.

Testimonial

The links between my environmental and my business classes are very interesting and studying abroad was a great opportunity to get a different perspective on my subject areas. My degree has taught me time management, essay-writing and referencing skills, and working under pressure. It has also provided me with great networking opportunities as I have met many inspiring mentors.

Teaching and Facilities

Teaching and learning

On average, you can expect to spend eight to 12 hours per week in a combination of lectures, seminars, workshops and practical classes.

You’ll also take part in small-group tutorials, receiving further guidance on the course material and developing your study skills.

In the final year, tutorials are replaced with one-to-one meetings with your tutor as you prepare for your independent research project and plan your future career.

For every hour of classes, expect to do a further four to six hours of independent study.

Assessment

Modules are assessed through a combination of coursework and examination. Coursework may include extended essays, short reports, posters, oral presentations and group work.

Students must also complete a final-year independent study project of 10,000 words, based on an original study of their choice.

 

Resources and facilities

The Schools of Geography, Biological and Chemical Sciences, and Business and Management offer excellent on-campus resources to aid your studies, including:

  • river laboratory
  • environmental preparation laboratory
  • elemental analysis laboratory
  • a purpose-built media suite designed to support student entrepreneurship
  • newly refurbished lecture theatres.
