Description

This MSc programme is designed to meet the need for multidisciplinary training in these areas, focusing on the terrestrial, hydrologic and atmospheric environments, examining anthropogenic influence in the context of natural variability, and elucidating the biological, physical and societal consequences. The programme includes coverage of both the scientific background, the research methods and tools commonly applied, and the societal and policy implications of current research understanding. It is designed to prepare students for careers in environmental change research, consultancy and/or policy development, and is delivered by a multidisciplinary team with assessments based on a series of written reports and a research dissertation.
