Months of entry
The aims of this course are to provide students with a clear understanding of the main issues related to Climate Change (causes, impacts, mitigation and adaptation). With that firm and broad base, the course provides great flexibility for the student to choose, from a broad range, combinations of taught optional modules mainly from those within School of Life Sciences' marine modules but also appropriate modules (e.g. GIS techniques) from around the Schools and Institutes of the University in order to tailor studies towards their specific needs and interests.
