Dr Tracy Aze

I’m Tracy Aze the programme leader for the Environmental Science BSc / MEnv, BSc programme.

This course gives students a wide perspective on the ways in which different aspects of our environment interact, while providing them with the relevant skills to become effective environmental managers. The degree programme provides a broad applied understanding of the scientific issues and of the techniques used to underpin environmental study.

As a student you can expect to be in frequent contact with practising experts from a variety of environmental fields as well as academic staff. You will be expected to deal with the wide range of environmental issues and challenges facing us on global and local scales. You will learn skills that will help you to apply the sophisticated techniques available to environmental scientists in solving environmental problems. At the end of the course you will have a thorough command of the subject and of transferable and environmental skills, and you will be well-placed to enter employment or postgraduate education.

Your course includes practical work e.g. computer modelling techniques and laboratory work, and there is plenty of fieldwork including day trips.

I look forward to meeting you in person soon.
