Climate change is one of the most pressing, and one of the more complex, problems facing society in the 21st century.
This innovative degree programme will provide you with a comprehensive grounding in the physical science basis of climate change in the past, present and future. You will discover the societal impacts, alongside the scientific drivers that underpin climate change. The course is delivered by internationally recognised experts in their fields.
Graduates of the Climate Science degree will have a sound foundation for careers in academia, research organisations, government agencies and local authorities, or environmental consultancies, amongst others. Many continue on to graduate training at Masters or Doctoral level.
This course has been provisionally accredited by the Royal Meteorological Society and satisfies their academic requirements for Chartered Meteorologist status.
