Course summary

Aquatic Conservation, Ecology and Restoration MSc

Environmental issues such as pollution, habitat degradation, climate change and invasive species threaten the quality sustainability of our aquatic resources. Responding to these threats the Aquatic Conservation, Ecology and Restoration MSc equips students with an interdisciplinary understanding of the structure and functioning of aquatic environments, encompassing lakes, ponds, rivers, wetlands, groundwaters, estuaries and shallow seas. Students focus on integrated freshwater and coastal systems and gain extensive training in field sampling, study design and species identification. Distinctive features include: integration of aquatic ecology with hydro-geomorphology, aquatic landscape ecology, public engagement, citizen science approaches and science communication, analysis of sediment cores for environmental change reconstruction, design of aquatic monitoring programmes and modelling of aquatic system dynamics. Students come away with a sound and critical knowledge of current-day links between aquatic science, legislation and conservation.

Careers

This programme provides an ideal foundation for PhD research, or for employment with environmental protection and conservation agencies, the water industry and environmental consultancies.

Employability

The MSc provides students with the science background and practical skills necessary for a career working in aquatic conservation and environmental protection agencies, environmental consultancies and stakeholder agencies. The MSc is also an ideal platform for further PhD study. We aim to expose students to potential employers from the outset and students receive expert tuition in field sampling and monitoring programme design, catchment management, conservation biology, taxonomy of key species groups, knowledge of important aquatic conservation principles and legislation and working with stakeholders.

Optional qualifications

This degree is also available as a PG Diploma and a PG Certificate with fees set accordingly.
