We would welcome the chance to meet you, show you our facilities and discuss the opportunities open to you within LEC at one of our varied and informal open days.
Environmental Science at LEC
Environmental Science combines aspects of geography, geology, chemistry and physics, providing you with a unique set of skills to investigate environmental processes and understand complex environmental systems.
Environmental scientists are at the forefront of work to address key natural and man-made challenges facing society. These challenges include mitigating and adapting to the impacts of climate change, protecting water resources from pollution, reducing the risks associated with flooding and geological hazards, and achieving sustainable management of natural resources. Central to our Environmental Science degrees is application of knowledge to real-world issues through extensive fieldwork and laboratory training.
The Environmental Science department at Lancaster was one of the first established in the UK, and has been refining the subject regularly over the last 45 years. The strengths of our degrees include:
