Programme and University Requirements

The Bachelor of Environmental Studies is a four-year direct honours programme. Its interdisciplinary nature requires students to acquire a strong foundation in environmental issues through a two-year, broad-based curriculum as they complete modules in biology, chemistry, economics, geography, law, management, math, policy, public health and statistics. Students then choose to specialize in either Environmental Biology or Environmental Geography in their 3rd and 4th years.

The table of requirements below only applies to students matriculating in AY17/18. For returning students, kindly refer to the pdf version which can be found under Programmes>Programmes and University Requirements>Specialization tab on this website.
