Chemistry, the Atmosphere and the Environment BSc (Hons)

Course Overview - Chemistry, the Atmosphere and the Environment BSc (Hons)

Environmental change raises important concerns over the future well-being of our planet. Although it is apparent that some changes result at least in part from human activities, it is equally clear that natural variations also play a major role. This course will give you the opportunity to learn about the chemical basis of the environment and to understand how we impact upon it.
