Sustainable Development BSc (Hons)
Sustainable Development is widely regarded as the most promising framework for addressing environmental and developmental challenges in the twenty-first century, including: the provision of clean water and adequate sanitation, energy generation and supply, human health, food production and distribution, and the continuing threat to biodiversity.
The BSc (Hons) in Sustainable Development encourages students to rise to the challenges of the environment and society, and focuses on the study of principles and practices of sustainability in an interdisciplinary environment.
Sustainable Development is studied up to Honours level in both the Faculty of Science (BSc) and the Faculty of Arts (MA). Students who have a background in the sciences or who wish to study Sustainable Development alongside science subjects at St Andrews should apply for the BSc. For those interested in studying Sustainable Development alongside arts subjects, the MA in Sustainable Development may be of interest.
