The state of California is no stranger to environmental issues so it’s no surprise the University of California, Berkeley (UCB) continues to dominate in the subject rankings for Environmental Sciences.
While there’s relatively little movement in the top 10 compared to last year, further down the table some universities have made notable improvements. The University of New South Wales (NSW) has climbed nine places to 15th and is now the second best university for Environmental Sciences in Australia.
