Master in Architecture (MArch)

The programme encompasses design, technology and practice, as well as history and theory. Over 75 per cent of the degree is studio based with a strong emphasis on self-directed study and ambitious agendas.

NEW to MArch for 2014

Starting this year, MArch is divided up into five thematic studio groups which collectively encompass a broad range of approaches to architectural design.

Each led by a pair of tutors, the groups also feature an external ‘consultant’ who will contribute to teaching at strategic moments throughout the programme.

The focus of the MArch is to investigate and develop the relationships between critical practice, design and research in the making of architectural proposals. The thematic groups, therefore, will reflect the expertise and preoccupations of the tutors and consultants involved. Accordingly, the briefs developed and the work produced become a collaborative investigation between practitioners, students and academics into some of the spatial issues affecting the production of the built environment, both on this island and elsewhere.

Community and Politics
Culture and Technology
Leading Practice
The construction of Tectonics
Intelligent and Necessary

Accordingly, the briefs developed and the work produced become a collaborative investigation between practitioners, students and academics into some of the spatial issues affecting the production of the built environment, both on this island and elsewhere.
Students will be offered a choice of unit at the beginning of MArch I and then again at the beginning of MArch II, their thesis year. It is imagined that they will choose a different group each year to make the most of the breadth and the depth offered by the unit system.

COURSE OVERVIEW

New technology and a greater variety of formats are challenging the traditional boundaries of Science and Natural History Programming and driving greater audience demand. British production companies are at the forefront of leading innovation in formats and high-end content, with growing opportunities to work with North American and international broadcasters.

This course will give you:
-The skills to direct science and natural history productions.
-The know-how to produce entire shows.
-A practical working knowledge of current science and natural history television production methods.
-The ability to generate science and natural history programme ideas and formats.
-Knowledge of how the business works and current trends, including co-productions etc.
-The confidence and know-how to pitch those ideas to commissioning editors.
-Brilliant industry contacts and relevant skills for building a sustainable career as a Producer/Director.
-Access to NFTS's Masterclasses led by major creative figures from film, television and games.

The National Film and Television School’s Science and Natural History Masters focuses on developing Producers and Directors. Therefore, as part of the course students will be exposed to the development and production challenges of specialist factual genres, such as Landmark / Blue Chip (interchangeable terms for high budget, high production value programming mainly used in a pure wildlife context), mini landmarks, Children’s, People and Nature, Live, Expedition films, Magazine formats, Obs-doc etc. In addition there will be a focus on promoting cross-genre ideas to foster creativity.

Editorial policy and standards, together with codes of practice relating to science and the filming of animals, and Health and Safety will be fully explored.

Students will gain practical experience in both the research and development of programming of this type whilst also developing a body of work that showcases their practical film making skills and innovation within the genre.

Thank you for your interest in the University of Alabama’s marine science program Tuscaloosa is located inland, about a 4 hour drive to the coast.

We offer a dual degree program, in biology (or geology or chemistry) and marine science, that requires our students to spend several summers at the Dauphin Island Sea Lab, located just south of Mobile (please check out the website at http://www.disl.org/).

This program allows our students to work on a biology degree here on main campus during the academic year, where the bulk of our courses are geared toward freshwater and terrestrial ecosystems, and then spend time in highly intensive, hands-on marine science courses during the summers.

This schedule permits the students to complete their general requirements (e.g., general chemistry, math, geology) as well as the university’s required core courses for graduation at main campus with the maximum of options.

In order to fulfill the requirements of our marine science program, students take 2 semesters of general chemistry, geology, and physics, and a single semester of statistics on main campus.

Required marine science classes at the sea lab include:

Marine Biology,
Marine Geology,
Oceanography,
Marine Technical Methods, and
an Elective.


These courses are in addition to the liberal arts core curriculum designated by the university and the requirements of the chosen co-major. With two summers of marine science courses at Dauphin Island Sea Lab and a realistic load of classes each semester, graduation in four years is very possible.

Please feel free to contact us for additional information or to arrange a tour of the UA biology facilities.

The program is highly regarded and our graduates are very conversant in the sciences, making them well suited for a number of career options after graduation.

Hopefully we’ll see you at UA next year!

M.S. in Earth Science

The Master of Science in Earth Science prepares teachers, geologists, environmental leaders, planners, industry consultants, and others in the public and private sectors to management community and natural resource concerns, from groundwater and recycling to pollution and global warming. Advanced coursework ranges from astronomy, meteorology, conservation of natural resources, and geographic information systems to oceanography, groundwater geology, environmental geochemistry, and global climate change.

The program is designed for working professionals who wish to obtain an advanced degree in the field and also for teachers who hold initial certification but need a master’s degree to secure permanent teacher certification in the State of New York. The program may also benefit fully certified teachers who wish to expand their fields of expertise. Students may use the degree as a stepping stone to a Ph.D. program.

The 32-credit program allows for flexibility in meeting certification requirements, geotechnical and government agency employers’ needs, and individual career interests. The graduate courses are offered during the evening to accommodate working students. Our department’s past graduate students are working across Long Island and beyond as teachers and as environmental scientists and consultants.
