Course summary

MSc Environmental Monitoring, Modelling and Reconstruction focuses on analysing past, present, and future dynamic environments, providing you with the skills for a career in environmental management or¿consultancy, and a firm grounding for research in the environmental sciences. Concerns over the human impact on the environment have stimulated demand from governments and industry for the monitoring, analysis and modelling of natural processes in environmental systems. This is essential if we are to improve understanding of the interrelation of environmental variables to predict and manage their responses to anthropogenic perturbations. Studying this course, you will gain:

  • advanced theoretical knowledge and practical expertise to collect, interpret and analyse contemporary and past environmental data;
  • modelling skills to investigate the interrelationships between environmental variables, and to predict their responses to changing internal and external conditions;
  • intellectual and practical skills to design and undertake field and/or laboratory experiments in contemporary environmental process-monitoring, or palaeo-environmental reconstruction, and to design and test appropriate environmental models with the data you collect.

Entry requirements

We require a UK Honours degree with a First or Upper Second (2.1) classification or the overseas equivalent in Earth Sciences, Environmental Sciences, Geography or a related discipline. Graduates in Chemistry, Biological Sciences, Mathematics or Engineering related disciplines are also welcome. When assessing your academic record we take into account the grades you have achieved, your academic references and the standing of the institution where you studied your qualification.
