Course content

This MSc by Research provides an opportunity for students from biological subjects to begin research in life sciences.

Conserving biodiversity and avoiding the extinction of species are huge global challenges. It has never been more important for scientists to understand organisms and ecosystems, how they have evolved and are interrelated, and how they respond to the threats they face.

Evolution and Ecology seek to explore the natural world, from individuals to populations, and communities to ecosystems. Study in this area enables examination of how organisms interact with each other and their environment, and how these processes are affected by human activities. This helps us understand the planetary ecosystem and how it responds to environmental change.

As researchers in the School, students will have the opportunity to collaborate with academics working on studies and projects.
