Social Media RSS Feed en BSc in Environmental Science <p>From the ice wastes of the Antarctic, to the sultry heat of the tropical rain forest, to the incredible biodiversity of a chalk downland in Kent, there is an immense diversity of organisms and geography. Life on the planet (the biosphere) has survived for three thousand million years because of an intricate set of relationships which link water, land and atmosphere. These relationships are now being analysed and modelled by environmental scientists. As we understand more about these relationships, we can respond confidently to new threats such as climate change and loss of biodiversity. Canterbury Christ Church University, based at the heart of Kent (‘the garden of England’) is the perfect place for you to make a career out of your interest in the environment.
