You will exhibit depth and breadth of environmental science knowledge by demonstrating a broad and coherent knowledge and understanding of Earth system processes, especially in the hydrosphere, ecosphere, atmosphere and lithosphere, and a depth in the underlying principles and concepts in Environmental Chemistry and/or Environmental Biology
2.2. You will be able to exhibit an understanding of the depth and breadth of environmental science knowledge by demonstrating knowledge that environmental science has interdisciplinary connections with other sciences.
3 Inquiry and problem solving
3.1. You will be able to critically analyse and solve problems in environmental science through gathering, synthesizing and critically evaluating information from a range of sources
3.2. You will be able to critically analyse and solve problems in environmental science by designing and planning an investigation, including developing a testable hypothesis
3.3 You will be able to critically analyse and solve problems in environmental science by selecting and applying practical and/or theoretical techniques with technical competence in conducting field, laboratory-based, or virtual experiments
3.4You will be able to critically analyse and solve problems in environmental science by collecting, accurately recording, interpreting, and drawing conclusions from scientific data
4.1. You will be an effective communicator of environmental sciences by effectively communicating environmental results, information, or arguments using a range of modes (oral, written, visual) for a variety of purposes and audiences
5 Personal and professional responsibility
5.1. You will be accountable for individual learning and scientific work in environmental science by being an independent and self-directed learner
5.2. You will be accountable for your individual learning and scientific work in environmental science by working effectively, responsibly, ethically, and safely in an individual or team context
5.3 You will be accountable for your individual learning and scientific work in environmental science by demonstrating knowledge of the regulatory frameworks and ethical principles relevant to environmental science.
