The MRes in River Science is an advanced postgraduate degree which can either be taken as a stand-alone qualification or as progression route into doctoral research.
This MRes aims to provide a synthesis of scientific knowledge on river geomorphology, hydrology and ecology and focuses on the application of scientifically sound and environmentally-sensitive river management. It also seeks to provide the theoretical underpinning and field and/or laboratory training necessary to undertake a River Science research project at Masters level.
The Programme aims to prepare students: - For doctoral level study. - To engage in a career in River Science within a government agency (e.g. Environment Agency), charity (e.g. a Rivers Trust or Wildlife Trust) or an environmental consultancy. - To meet the global need for highly trained individuals who can make informed decisions on future research directions. - To think for themselves in the development of a critical approach to the analysis of data and interpretation of published research.
