By the time you graduate you will have developed valuable skills such as numeracy, literacy, laboratory skills, critical thinking, team work, project management and research design. You will have learnt how to use cutting edge scientific equipment, the latest in modelling tools, and have developed expertise in monitoring, modelling and managing the environment. Plus you will have learnt how to understand and tackle the big problems that face our society, such as food security, climate change and pollution.

This, combined with the high regard in which our qualifications are held, has enabled recent graduates to embark on rewarding careers with a broad range of public and private sector organisations.

An Environmental Science degree from Liverpool gives you the experience and skills for a wide range of career opportunities. Some graduates put their knowledge of Environmental Science to direct use in areas such as environmental impact assessment, energy resource management, flooding, conservation and environmental consultancy. Others use their transferable skills in careers such as accountancy, teaching and management - a significant number join major organisations' Graduate Training Programmes. Either way, we provide you with the flexibility to tailor your degree towards your career aspirations.

Given our research environment, gaining your degree at Liverpool is also perfect preparation for postgraduate study at Masters or PhD level and for a ground-breaking academic career.
