Course Description

The MSc in Ecology and the Environment is one of our most popular postgraduate schemes. At the heart of its success is flexibility: modules can be selected from our full range to meet the needs or interests of any student of ecological or environmental sciences. This vocational degree offers you the chance to blend ecological and environmental science topics with those from areas such as social science, geography and statistics. This MSc provides you with an understanding of the relationships between living organisms and their physical, chemical and biotic environment while also providing important specific skills related to environmental monitoring and management. The course also develops your transferable skills appropriate to a career in research, consultancy or industry. Graduates have gone on to pursue careers in the environmental and conservation sectors, as well as progressing to further study for a PhD. Taught modules are all optional and six modules are chosen from a selection of relevant biological, ecological, environmental and geographical modules. Please note modules are subject to change. Part-time options are available over 24 months. We aim to be as flexible as possible on our part-time schemes, so if you are unsure whether you can fit in your studies around work or family responsibilities visit us at one of our open days or contact us to talk about your needs.
