The natural world is complex and human activity can have unexpected consequences that are hard to reverse. Are you interested in finding out how physical and biological processes maintain life, and how humans affect nature, which requires a broad interdisciplinary perspective? Environmental problems and their associated solutions typically involve social, political and economic aspects which the scientist must be aware of; would you like to be part of this solution? If so, you should consider Environmental Science as an engaging and though provoking option. The subject is unique among awarding bodies, providing a highly relevant interdisciplinary fourth science option. It?s ideal for anyone interested in contemporary environmental issues, systems thinking and sustainability. The world is becoming more crowded, more consuming, and more connected. Growing populations and higher standards of living put increasing pressure on our environment. Environmental problems are more real, more controversial, and more in need of intelligent solutions as they were over 50 years ago. This is why the dedicated study of Environmental Science is so important. It is only by understanding how the world works that we can begin to tackle some of our pressing problems.
