Masters degrees in Mycology administer specialist training in the uses and molecular aspects of fungi and fungal infection, and their symbiotic (interactive) relationships. Contexts for analysis include medicine and epidemiology, food consumption, and entheogens.
Popular postgraduate specialisms in this subject include Medical Mycology, Infectious Diseases and Fungal Biology. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject, such as Biology or Medicine.
Degrees in Mycology are diverse. For example, you may wish to focus solely on one type of fungi and its uses, or study fungi more generally in relation to a specific area such as plants, humans, or animals.
You will gain plenty of practical experience and transferrable skills including lab testing, cell manipulation, gene identification, and data collection and analysis, making you suitable for a variety of positions.
Careers may include tackling issues such as conservation and global warming, undertaking roles in environmental surveying and forestry management. You may branch into biotechnology and industry, dealing with biofuel and food additive production, or pharmaceuticals. You experience would also help you work towards a career in veterinary mycology.
