School of Life Sciences and the Environment

The School of Life Sciences and the Environment’s mission is to be world-leading across the full range of disciplines that make up our school: Biological Sciences, Earth Sciences, Geography, Health Studies and Psychology. The School augments the work of our Departments through support for key areas of cross-cutting research in the Life and Environmental Sciences.

Our teaching and research priorities are informed by changing priorities in the external world, and are based on complex relationships among human, non-human and multi-species communities. We lead the College in addressing the challenges facing our planet. From molecules to societies, from fundamental to the creative, our School will bring to the fore the relationships between human and non-human communities, their environments, ecologies, and societies.
