Join one of the largest and most successful groupings of geoscientists and geographers in the UK, as we address the most compelling issues of our time.
Increasing wealth, global population and urbanisation is resulting in unprecedented rates of climate and environmental change. This poses formidable challenges for both biodiversity and humanity. At the School of GeoSciences, you will be uniquely placed to explore and tackle these issues through our range of MSc programmes, which span a wide range of natural and social sciences.
Through our programmes, you can seek to understand the interconnected processes that shape our planet, share your understanding with others and strive to help humanity find a path for a sustainable future in a changing world.
Our programmes are strengthened through collaboration with a range of internal and external partners including the University’s other schools, such as the Business School, the School of History, Classics & Archaeology and the School of Social & Political Science, and Scotland’s Rural College (SRUC). We work closely with industry to find practical answers to tomorrows problems.
