Best Distance learning Bachelors of Science in Natural Sciences 2017. Environmental Geography is the integrated study of the world, its landscapes, places, people and their relationship with the environment. Environmental Geography seeks to make sense of the world we live in and is unique in bridging the environmental and social sciences. ‌ While Physical Geography and Human Geography are disciplines in their own right, Environmental Geography combines these subjects to provide a much-needed capability to study and understand interactions between people, and between people and the environments in which they live. Environmental Geographers have expert knowledge and skills to research, analyse and communicate how the changing environment affects our lives. Their ability to visualise geographical issues at different spatial scales, from global to local and to offer solutions to some of our most pressing environmental problems, ensures that graduates in Environmental Geography are highly sought after by a wide range of employers. This subject may be studied in combination with a number of other subjects What makes us different? Biological and Environmental Sciences (BES) within the Faculty of Natural Sciences is a multi-disciplinary department that participates in research and teaching in a broad range of subjects in the biological and environmental sciences. The principle focus of the research is at the interface between the environment and society. Within BES, staff conduct research in areas as diverse as the reconstruction of past landscapes; conservation, environmental impact assessment and environmental management and evolutionary ecology of plants and animals. BES is a friendly,... [-]

This often leads to very successful careers with the federal government and top job placement. Accreditation by this council is recognized by the military and the public health sector as a means of entry into the Environmental Health Officer position. EHAC accreditation also allows seniors to take the Missouri Certified Environmental Health Specialist Exam which normally requires two years of experience before eligibility. The Hazardous Material Safety course is a review of information that is useful when taking the Hazardous Material Manager-in-Training (HMMT) exam. This credential, along with job experience, prepares the graduate to take the Certified Hazardous Materials Manager (CHMM) exam. The HMMT and CHMM credentials are recognition of your expertise and commitment to the protection of public safety and the environment as well as a boost your career.
