COURSE OVERVIEW

The MSc by Research in Environmental Dynamics allows you to undertake a year-long individual programme of personally and professionally enriching research.

Your environmental dynamics research project will be shaped by participation in activities such as seminars, workshops, laboratory activity and fieldwork, as well as your involvement in one of our established research groups.
