Course summary

Course Overview

This master's in Environmental Monitoring, Modelling and Reconstruction offers a remarkable opportunity to learn cutting-edge technological techniques, underpinned by advanced theoretical knowledge from some of the world’s foremost authorities in environmental monitoring, modelling and reconstruction.

Throughout the course you will develop your practical skills and theoretical understanding of contemporary measurements, by intertwining them with reconstruction of past environments and computer modelling of the behaviour of past and future environmental systems.

A week-long field trip in an Arctic location (e.g. Abisko, Sweden) will provide you with an excellent opportunity to practice your high-level data collection skills, developed within our thriving and inspiring research culture.

Our applied approach will allow graduates from any scientific background to develop the in-demand skills and theoretical understanding to succeed in industry, environmental management and consultancy, or further academic research.

This innovative new Masters offers:

A stepping stone from any scientific discipline to a range of careers in environmental management and consultancy, geosciences or further academic research

A taught course with a skills focus – you will learn how to apply high-level skills required for core environmental roles in the workplace or further academic research

A tailored experience – you will design and carry out your own research in conjunction with staff who are leading experts in environmental geosciences

A field trip to the Arctic – a remarkable opportunity to practise a wide range of high-level data collection and analysis skills in a unique location (included in the course fee).

Your Career

You will graduate from this highly practical and skills-focused Masters with the technical skills and critically applied expert knowledge that are demanded by industry.

The need to process overwhelming volumes of data in a meaningful way is one of the biggest challenges in almost every industry, and you will be equipped with the skills to make a valuable contribution. The emphasis on science communication throughout the course will prepare you to articulate your contributions clearly to both specialist and non-specialist audiences, as well as giving you valuable access to regional employers.

Your focus on modelling, monitoring and reconstruction of the environment will equip you for careers in the environmental consultancy and management sectors, with organisations such as the Environment Agency, Natural England or the UK atomic Energy Authority. Within this sector you will be fully prepared for a wide range of highly diverse roles such as Environmental Advisor, Pollution Monitor, Risk Analyst or Environmental Engineer.
