We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Environmental Biology provide advanced study of relationships between organisms and their terrestrial, freshwater or marine environments, in addition to the interactions that result from natural and anthropogenic (human) processes.
Popular specialisms and related subjects include branches of Marine Biology, Conservation Biology and broader Environmental Science. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Biology or Environmental Science.
Topics range from issues such as climate change and exploitation of natural resources, to the general monitoring of populations, including wildlife or zoological conservation. Many courses focus solely on animal molecular and evolutionary ecology, with some specialising in areas such as agriculture (particularly livestock-wildlife relationships).
Practical training in lab testing and experiment design is a key component of these degrees, alongside activities such as identification, bioimaging, and 3D modelling. Surveillance practise - including GIS (Geographical Information Systems) – is incorporated through fieldwork. These transferrable skills may be relevant in a number of careers.
These may include: policy making within government; consultancy for SMEs or charitable organisations; positions within research institutes such as universities and agencies.
