Natural history is the study of organisms and the environments in which they live. This is a diverse and exciting subject that covers the study of animals, plants and their environments, along with earth and environmental sciences.
You'll study di?erent organisms - how they are identified, their life history, relationships, behaviour and conservation. You'll also understand the processes that shape our land, coastlines and climate.
You'll explore the diversity of life, wildlife management for conservation, animal biology, geo-sciences and environmental survey skills. You'll also develop skills in experimental design, ecological surveying and field research techniques, and data analysis.
Studying Natural History will take you out of the classroom and into the digital production suite, where you will develop specialist skills in science communication, photography and film-making.
Our Natural History degree has a strong practical field element for you to gain key skills in a range of environments. Presently, students go on field courses to Pembrokeshire, Iceland, and on the optional Natural History expedition to Botswana*.
