BSc (Hons) in Environmental Science (add-on)
This course comprises the fourth year of the Level 8 BSc (Hons) in Environmental Science. Applicants should have achieved a relevant level 7 degree such as the Bachelor of Science in Environmental Protection at IT Sligo.
The Level 8 BSc (Hons) in Environmental Science deals mainly with management issues in relation to environmental protection and pollution control, habitat conservation, recycling, energy and sustainability and includes a combination of field trips, laboratory work, site visits, project work, presentations, lectures and work placement.
An important element of the final year is to undertake an individually-supervised research project in an area of interest to the student that is of environmental significance.
