  • Course description

    MSc courses last for one year (September to August inclusive) and include a substantial research project. The Diploma covers the same classes as the MSc but lasts for just 9 months (September to May inclusive). Students admitted to the Diploma course and who perform well in the taught modules may be invited to transfer to the MSc course.


    Large global changes, and climate change in particular, are having significant impacts on the environment.   The study of impacts and mitigation/adaptation measures in the marine environment requires a truly interdisciplinary approach.   It is essential that scientists, engineers and environmental decision-makers understand the fundamentals of the causes, impacts and management measures involved in dealing with such important issues.  The course specialises in the challenges facing the marine environment and is part of the University's programme of teaching and research in climate change related issues.   There are a variety of optional modules available but the core subjects are listed below.


        * Climate Change:  Causes and Impacts
        * Marine Resources:  Utilisation, Interactions and Control
        * Marine Conservation and Sustainability
        * Marine Monitoring and Pollution Control
        * Climate Change:  Mitigation and Adaptation Measures
        * Research Project (MSc only)
