Marine Sciences studies how marine systems and processes operate naturally and how they change through human intervention.
Seas and oceans play an important role in our day-to-day lives, and over 65% of the world's population lives or works in coastal areas. Vital for our economy and health – as well as for climate, food, and biodiversity – seas and oceans have immense societal significance. However, the oceans are changing rapidly as human-induced pollution and CO2 emissions lead to global warming and ocean acidification. The impact on organisms, ocean chemistry, and currents on short to long timescales is uncertain, affecting both business and policymaking.
As part of your two-year Master's programme in Marine Sciences, students will learn how marine systems and processes operate naturally – and how they change through human intervention. The programme offers multidisciplinary cutting-edge information in this rapidly developing field.
