This masters course will enable you to examine some of contemporary science's most pressing issues and to develop a wide range of skills associated with masters-level study. The MSc includes taught modules and a compulsory project module which gives you the opportunity to explore a topic in further depth, and to undertake a substantial piece of independent research based on the knowledge and skills you will have developed in the taught modules. You have the flexibility to choose from a number of optional taught modules currently on offer within the science postgraduate programme (in areas such as Earth Science, Brain and Behavioural Science and Medicinal Chemistry), and tailor this MSc to suit your own interests.
Completing this qualification will equip you key transferable skills which will be relevant to your career, as well as providing you with a base of postgraduate level science knowledge and understanding. You will learn to critically evaluate current research and advanced scholarship in your field of study as well as evaluating research methodologies. You will learn to deal with complex issues and make sound judgements and decisions in complex situations.
You will also learn to communicate information and conclusions to specialist and non-specialist (including professional) audiences, demonstrate self-direction and originality in tackling and solving problems, and act autonomously in planning and implementing tasks at a postgraduate level.
The qualification will develop your independent learning skills, enhance your skills in locating information and communicating with others in both professional and academic contexts.
