The Environmental Science Programme is a multidisciplinary Master’s degree programme that allows students to take coursework and conduct research across two or more disciplines: Chemistry, Geography, Geology, Marine Science, Surveying and Zoology. Most students enter the Environmental Science Programme from a more traditional science discipline (e.g. a BSc in chemistry, ecology, geography or zoology) and use the programme to gain the interdisciplinary expertise and experience necessary to address complex environmental issues.
