With growing pressures on scarce resources and concern over the effects of climate change, there has never been a better time to study environmental science. Gain the knowledge and skills to help build a cleaner future and address the challenges facing human existence on earth.

Our course covers areas including:

  • hydrology
  • geomorphology
  • oceanography
  • climatology
  • biology
  • chemistry
  • physics
  • maths
  • statistics

Our Geography department is relatively small. This means we can get to know you personally, and offer a friendly and supportive learning experience. You can contact any member of staff at any time to ask for help.

Your fieldwork will take place in both physical and social environments. We make use of Dundee city itself and other nearby locations and landscapes for local day trips. We also take you further afield into the Scottish Highlands or Iceland for week-long residential field trips.

The student-led Geography and Environmental Society also has a programme of activities to help you become part of our community.
