MSc Environmental Science

Our objectives on the MSc in Environmental Science programme are to train students to recognise and understand the threats and conflicts in the environment today and to appreciate the steps required to develop solutions to them. Appreciation of the impact of these factors requires an interdisciplinary approach combining scientists, managers and environmental practitioners.

The programme begins with students taking a wide range of courses over two terms. The courses cover environmental pollution, soil science, remediation technologies, environmental economics and analytical chemistry. Courses are delivered by a combination of lectures, lab practicals, field trips and tutorials. In addition, students can expect career development advice, site visits, and a residential field trip that considers the land use, rural management and industry in the North East of Scotland. The final three months of the programme are dedicated to carrying out a research project that provides training in technical skills and analysis of results, as well as writing a manuscript for a scientific journal.

The School of Biological Sciences has an international reputation for excellence in inter-disciplinary research in the environmental sciences and was graded 5 in the 2001 Research Assessment Exercise. Aberdeen is an international centre for remediation of contaminated land and has research expertise in soil science, environmental microbiology, biogeochemistry and modelling.
