The environment is currently being subjected to unprecedented anthropogenic change at all spatial scales, from local pollution incidents, through landscape alteration due to agricultural change and urbanisation, right up to global climate change. Unfortunately it is hard to respond to such challenges due to the complex and multifactorial nature of environmental systems. The science is difficult to encompass and digest, the technology wide-ranging and complex, and the responses required more difficult to implement.
The aim of this MSc is therefore to train a new generation of environmental monitors and managers to detect and measure environmental changes and attempt either to mitigate them or to adapt to them. To achieve this aim the course will of necessity by highly Interdiciplinary. It will combine the broad knowledge and expertise within the two schools of SoBBES and GEES and elsewhere in the Science faculty of a wide variety of subjects, ranging from eDNA and ecology, through to geochemistry and GIS, enabling students to identify and define the problems. The field of environmental science is a fast-moving one, and the course will use and train students in the new technologies It will also be Integrative. It will show how different approaches and technologies can be harnessed to understand the processes of environmental change, and how they can be addressed. Finally it will be Translational. It will show how modern theory and technology can be harnessed to manage ecosystems in the service of stakeholders, such as industry and the regulatory authorities. Students will be encouraged to perform research projects with the many stakeholder partners we have built up locally, nationally and internationally, solving real life problems of environmental change. The programme aims to bring students up to MSc level in the following areas:
1. To provide an in-depth knowledge of the causes and consequences of Environmental Change, and of all aspects of the technologies used to monitor it from laboratory analysis to field techniques.
2. To provide the know-how to critically assess the different methods of managing environmental change used by stakeholders and regulatory authorities, and the technical ability to implement these measures.
3. To provide a knowledge of the policy and regulatory framework under which environmental monitoring and management operate.
4. To train them to be able to design and implement research programmes to assess environmental change, to analyse the results obtained and write up and communicate the findings to both specialist and non-specialist audiences.
5. To develop the transferrable skills necessary to successfully carry out monitoring and to implement change, skills such as teamwork, communication, time management and independent thinking.
