We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Biogeochemical Cycles involve advanced study of the behaviours and cycles of matter within the biosphere and the physical environment.
Courses range from taught MSc degrees, to research oriented MRes and MPhil programmes. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Environmental Science.
Courses in this field are highly interdisciplinary, and varied in nature. You may focus your studies in a range of areas, including (but not limited to) river environments and wetland science, climate studies, oceanography and tropical forestry.
Across these disciplines, issues such as biodiversity, sustainability and practices in conservation are investigated. For example, you might explore the evolution of sedimentary systems, or the processes which regulate sea levels.
Practical training may include methods such as remote sensing, data collection including geographical information systems (GIS), sampling, bioimaging and experiment design.
Careers in the field are highly varied. Traditional roles include primary field research on behalf of NGOs and private corporations, regulation management for environmental or health and safety agencies, and charitable work such as conservation. Other roles may include positions within local government, or public policy and community work.
