Environmental Studies or Environmental Science ?
What's the difference between an Environmental Science degree and an Environmental Studies degree?
Because of its focus, an Environmental Science degree will give you more subject-specific skills than an Environmental Studies degree. Both degrees look at environmental issues and problems, but in a different way.
Environmental Science focusses on the scientific drivers and answers to these problems, whilst Environmental Studies gives more of an overview as it looks at these issues through many perspectives and disciplines, including social, political, and economic.
