School of Environment


Welcome from the Head of School

A message of welcome from the Head of the School of Environment.

Professor Paul Kench Head of School

The School of Environment (ENV) is an innovative amalgam of disciplines and interdisciplinary programmes that have a shared focus on the natural and human contexts and conditions of the world we live in. Its formation in 2009 (formerly the School of Geography, Geology and Environmental Science) has been timely given the public, political and policy recognition that physical and social explanations alone cannot sufficiently acknowledge the complexities of issues of contemporary concern.

Teaching is research led such that academic staff include in their course material the latest findings related to the School's six interdisciplinary research themes namely, Earth Systems and Resources, Contested Environments, Globalising Processes, Living with Environmental Change, Pacific Futures and Urban Dynamics.

If you would like guidance on course selection and content for our taught programmes please do not hesitate to get in touch with our undergraduate (BA/BSc) or postgraduate taught (PGDipSci, PGDipArts, BA(Hons), BSc (Hons)) programme advisers. If interested in postgraduate research (Masters and PhD) please contact our Masters Coordinator (Masters applicants) or our Head of Postgraduate Research (PhD applicants).

If seeking research consultancy services then please get in touch with me in the first instance.

Professor Paul Kench
Head of School
