Environmental Science is an interdisciplinary subject providing for the study of both the natural and the man-made world.

The environment is described as a dynamic system composed of a number of interconnected processes and phenomena. These include the formation of rocks, the climate system, the cycling of biologically important elementsĀ and the interactions between organisms and their surroundings.

Environmental Science is a useful tool to assess the human impact on our surroundings and enables a better understanding of the local, regional and global environmental issues that we face nowadays.

Detailed knowledge of the natural science subjects (Physics, Chemistry and Biology) is not required for the course.
