Course summary

What is more exciting or enigmatic than the life in our oceans? We still know so little about this alien world which makes up 98% of the living space on our planet, but with technology developing at such a pace more and more discoveries are being made.It is an exciting time to be involved in any aspect of marine science; a crucial one too, as our impact on the world’s oceans has never been greater.This honours degree can be studied as a three year programme, or as a final year (level 6) where you will complete Year 3 only. It has been designed to develop your interest and hone your professional skills to equip you for work in a growing industry. Situated on the beautiful coast of North Cornwall we are perfectly located for fieldwork and we have a strong practical element running through the programme. You will get hands-on experience in using sampling and survey equipment, as well as planning and undertaking marine surveys: from plankton trawls, to underwater video mapping and offshore marine life surveys.During your studies you will develop your understanding of marine animals; working from cellular processes up to whole organism and ecosystem levels. In Year 1 you will receive a firm grounding in aquatic ecology, marine and biological science as well as developing practical survey skills before moving on to more specialised modules, such as fish ecology and marine vertebrate biology and conservation in your second year. In your final year you will choose from options such as GIS and marine environmental management, monitoring marine ecosystems and marine pollution and ecotoxicology as well as undertaking your own research for your honours project.Employers expect graduates to be skilled communicators and you will find that coursework takes a variety of formats from scientific reports and posters, to presentations and discussions. In addition most modules have test or exam elements.Possible careers available with this qualification:Marine Biologist with an Environmental OrganisationMarine Officer with an Environmental CharityMarine Science Officer in Expedition OrganisationUniversity ResearcherMarine TechnicianFisheries OfficerMarine Planning OfficerMarine ConsultantEducation Officer or TeacherMarine Biologist with an Environmental OrganisationMarine Officer with an Environmental CharityMarine Science Officer in Expedition OrganisationUniversity ResearcherMarine TechnicianFisheries OfficerMarine Planning OfficerMarine ConsultantEducation Officer or Teacher
