Course programme

This major focuses on the relationship between human activities and the natural and built environment, and humanity’s reliance on the earth’s natural resources.

Humanity has an ever-changing relationship with the natural environment. It is a complex, issues-rich relationship that requires careful and considered management.

The quality of the world’s societies and ecosystems depends on the sustainable management of our farmlands, forests and oceans. It is also determined by how we manage our cities and our handling of water supplies, energy, wastes and air. Technological advances to address these problems are rarely free of environmental costs and professionals working in this field must also negotiate contemporary political disputes.
