Recommended Curricula

The following are examples only. Not all the options and possible subject combinations are covered, and curricula are subject to timetable constraints. Students with particular interests are encouraged to discuss other possible course combinations with the Head of Department. Where both semesters of a year course are recommended, the subject is indicated by its year number only, e.g. ENV 2 instead of ENV 201 and 202. GOG 1 is used instead of EAR 101 & GOG 102.

Curricula could, for example, be structured around one of the following sub-disciplines:

1. Biological resources

Year 1: CHE 1; CEL 101; BOT 102; ZOO 102; EAR 101; GOG 102; STA 101
Year 2: ENV 2; two of BOT 2, ENT 2 , ICH 2, MIC 2 or ZOO 2.
Year 3: ENV 3; and one of BOT 3, ENT 3, ICH 3, MIC 3 or ZOO 3 depending on the choice of second year subjects. 2. Earth resources

Year 1: CHE 1; CEL 101; BOT 102; EAR 101; GOG 102; GLG 102; MAN 101
