Masters degrees in Environmental Physiology offer advanced study of the physiological responses of plants and animals to environmental change.
Courses range from taught MSc degrees, to research-based MRes and MPhil programmes. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Biology or Environmental Science.
Courses in this field train you to investigate and analyse issues such as biodiversity, homeostasis, stress and survival strategies.
Practical training may include processes such as taxonomy, bioimaging and 3D modelling, remote sensing, and GIS (geographical information systems). They may also include ecogenomics – the molecular study of an organism’s responses to its environment.
These courses are often interdisciplinary in nature, but also offer opportunities for you to specialise your studies. For example, you may integrate techniques in Computer Science and Ecology to analyse migration patterns or the process of pollination.
Alternatively, you could specialise more specifically in areas such as ethnobiology and ethnobotany, studying the management of threatened species and the restoration of endangered wildlife and ecosystems.
Traditional careers include roles within government agencies or NGOs such as charities. You may also work in industries such as agriculture, pharmaceuticals and medicine.
