Course summary

On this Marine Science and Conservation BSc, you will explore how the shape of the ocean floor gives clues as to how they were formed and what role they play in physical and biological processes today; you will get to understand the forces that drive the ocean currents around our planet; you’ll discover how complex biological ecosystems have evolved and how we have exploited the marine environment in more recent times. On this course, you will also develop a deep understanding of the principles of conservation and how those are applied in real-world settings. You will be exposed to the wide range of environmental and policy issues that arise in marine conservation and have options to study the overarching legal framework in which you would operate as a marine conservation professional. Never before has the need for conservation of our marine environment been more apparent and never before has it been as acute. This course will give you the breadth and depth of understanding that you need to make a difference. You will graduate with an integrated understanding of marine environments, conservation issues, marine policies and scientific practice and you will be perfectly trained to work for conservation organisations, government bodies, environmental consulting firms and NGOs at local, national or international level. ‘Placement Year’ and 'International Experience Year’ options are available for this course. You will have the opportunity to fully consider these options when you have started your course at Bangor and can make an application for a transfer onto such a pathway at the appropriate time. You can find more information about these options on our website and if you have any questions, please get in touch. If you don’t have the required qualifications for this degree-level course or are looking to re-enter education after time away from study, then a Foundation Year Programme might be the right choice for you. Please see Geological Oceanography (with Foundation Year) F62F.
