About Fees Study Entry Prospects How to apply Faculty of Science and Engineering MSc in Marine Environmental Management Postgraduate - Taught MSc Open for admission in 2019/20 Open for admission in 2020/21 Start in September Full time MSc 1 year How to apply About the course Marine management is becoming ever more challenging and complex. Global factors such as climate change, the loss of the Arctic ice cap and increasingly globalised trade in seafood are all having a huge impact. This has generated a demand for graduates with advanced knowledge in this area. This programme will give you an understanding of marine environmental processes and policies at local, national, European and global scales. Two pathways have been created, one for those interested in Fisheries Science and the other for those interested in Marine Ecology. You’ll graduate with the skills and knowledge to work in a wide range of marine environmental organisations – or continue your studies even further at PhD level. There are two pathways available: MSc Marine Environmental Management (Fisheries) MSc Marine Environmental Management (Ecology) When applying for this programme, please specify the name of the pathway you wish to study. What you'll study The modules you study will depend on which pathway you choose. Core module (both pathways) Dissertation You will make an original contribution to research by designing, carrying out and writing up your own project on a topic you choose, supported by your dissertation supervisor. Compulsory modules (Fisheries pathway) Applied Fisheries Science and Management Applied Benthic Ecology Research Design Operational Oceanography Optional modules (Fisheries pathway) Principles of GIS Ecotoxicology Marine and Aquatic Environmental Law Scientific Diving Professional Consultancy Project Work with a 'host' organisation on a research project, supervised by University tutors.
