I’m sorry to break this to you, but the Earth is in trouble. Like, for real! It’s a matter of time until she will announce it’s time to shut down and go to bed, and that she’s not mad, just disappointed. Well, luckily, a Master’s degree in Environmental Studies & Earth Sciences will keep nature happy and help us do our share of chores around the house.

This degree places the environment in the forefront, studying every aspect of the natural world as well as the human impact upon it. Through this subject, you can diminish the harm we do and devote your energy to conserving nature as much as possible.

Studying issues like pollution, global climate change, and the depletion of natural resources, students in Environmental Studies & Earth Sciences programmes focus on the most pressing environmental and ecological issues of today. Some of the specialisations you can choose from, be it for your Bachelor’s or your Master’s, are:

• Geology
• Climate Studies and Meteorology
• Oceanography, Hydrology and Water Management
• Toxicology
• Biodiversity and Conservation
• Ecology
• Natural Hazard Prediction

Students in Environmental Studies & Earth Sciences should have an affinity for Physics and Biochemistry. Because you will be able to apply everything you learn through experimentation and observation. So, if you like having a hands-on approach to studying (and you like assuring the survival of humanity more generally), this is the degree to choose.
