    Course Summary

    Environmental Chemistry is the measurement, detection and study of chemical pollution and other contaminants in the air, water and soil, and in the plants and animals themselves. It includes reaching a deeper understanding of the way these contaminants change over time and the way they flow through food chains and other systems. Most importantly, it includes the effects these chemicals have on the life forms which they touch.  

    A BSc degree in Environmental Chemistry from Trent University will see you making a real difference in the world. You’ll learn to detect and quantify different pollutants, assess the impact hey have on the ecosystem, and on humanity.

    You’ll get a great deal of one on one learning time with your professors, something that is becoming all too rare in Baccalaureate level studies today. This will ensure that you gain the in-depth knowledge you need to build a career in this vitally necessary discipline.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.
