Transcript

  • 1. MSc Aquatic Ecology by Research The majority of MSc programmes with an aquatic theme are based upon taught modules focusing on applied aspects of management. However, the rationale for offering the MSc Aquatic Ecology by Research (AER) is to provide a more comprehensive practical training by application in the laboratory or field, rather than by formal tuition in the lecture theatre. In essence then, AER melds both the UK and European models of MSc. The key element is the extended project which is designed to provide many the skills required to undertake further academic or applied research. The introductory taught element (45 credits) is provided by world experts from the School of Biological and Chemical Sciences and the Department of Geography at Queen Mary, University of London. Staff from a range of external agencies also contribute. You will acquire the remainder of the necessary credits (135 credits) by completing an extended project aligned to cutting-edge research groups within the Centre for the Aquatic and Terrestrial Environment. Why study with us? • To develop a strong interdisciplinary understanding in aquatic ecology • To provide a structured and highly practical training in research techniques and skills that engage with user needs • To provide a foundation for further PhD research, or for prospective employment with environmental protection and conservation agencies, the water industry and environmental consultancies For further information please contact: Postgraduate Administrator School of Biological and Chemical Sciences Tel: +44(0)20 7882 5287 Fax: +44(0)20 8983 0973 email: sbcs-pgadmissions@qmul.ac.uk www.sbcs.qmul.ac.uk
