Course content

Environmental sciences is the interdisciplinary study of atmospheric, oceanic, freshwater and terrestrial environments, coupled with an assessment of the interactions with human society.

This MSc programme will give you a rigorous understanding of the Earth’s natural processes, the impacts of human activities on the global environment and the strategies required for the sustainable management of natural resources.

It will offer you a range of subjects to choose from and a wide array of career options, both in vocational employment and postgraduate research. Whether you’re an environmental sciences graduate seeking additional training, or you’ve studied a related subject and wish to widen your environmental knowledge and skills, this flexible course is ideal.

You’ll explore the science of climate change and human adaptive response to increasing global temperatures and sea-level rise. Your training will also develop skills in the collection, analysis, interpretation and presentation of diverse datasets and the application of analytical tools such as numerical models and geographic information systems (GIS) to aid complex decision-making.

These transferable skills are invaluable for the jobs market, and will support you to move into a rewarding career.
