The programme aims to provide a broad background to all aspects of the science and management of estuaries and coastal/marine areas. Delivery will be through a series of lectures, seminars, tutorials, field visits and course assignment.
- build on the specialisations of your first degrees to broaden your knowledge within the specific focus on estuarine and marine environments.
- allow you to carry out desk, laboratory or field based research projects within the broad area of the programme but in such a way that you develop relevant skills in your preferred area.
- introduce you to practitioners from government, other statutory bodies and industry in order to provide an insight into working practices relevant to environmental management.
- prepare you for employment within regulatory bodies, the water industry, and environmental consultancies and applied research.
