OUTLINE OF THE AS ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCE PROGRAMME

STRUCTURE

The Associate Degree in Environmental Science is awarded to students who wish to focus their interest on courses concerned with important and pressing environmental issues. As such, this program concentrates on the fundamental principles of science which govern and describe the physical and biological characteristics of the Earth and on matters concerned with environmental degradation. Therefore, this program will be suitable for those interested in issues such as resource depletion, air and water pollution, waste management, global warming and species extinction.

 

OBJECTIVES

Students of this program will be exposed to the study of the following:

  • diversity of life and biotic interactions
  • structure and biochemical functioning of living organisms
  • history of marine biology, the physical and chemical characteristics of the marine environment, the diversity of marine life, marine ecology and the effects of humans on the marine environment
  • impact of the built environment on biodiversity
  • measuring of the damages that result from polluting activities and the benefits of environmental monitoring, remediation and conservation
  • industrial environmental management
  • research, data collection and analysis relevant to an environmental issue.
