The impact of human activity on our marine ecosystems has become more evident and high profile in recent years, such as from overfishing, habitat destruction, pollution, coastal development, plastics and climate change. So what do we do about it – how can we preserve and recover marine habitats and species populations while also allow sustainable use and exploitation of our seas?
This new MSc programme, taught by leading experts in the field, focuses specifically on marine conservation in practice and is targeted at producing the next generation of ocean guardians with the skill set to address this question. The MSc Marine Conservation programme does not have any exams within its range of assessments.
Candidates will require an appropriate background in primarily biological, marine and environmental sciences degree to honours level at 2:1 or above. Applications are also considered from well-qualified graduates in other disciplines with relevant experience or interests.
