MSc freshwater and marine ecology at Queen Mary University of London

  1. 1. MSc Freshwater and Marine Ecology Gain an in-depth understanding of aquatic ecosystems and the opportunity to learn techniques for their study and management in a practical setting, both here in the UK and overseas. Threats to the ecosystem goods and services that aquatic resources provide (e.g. clean drinking water, sustainable fisheries) frequently appear in the media and on the agendas of governments. To maintain these goods and services requires a fundamental understanding of the biodiversity and ecosystem processes responsible, for without knowledge there can be no application or effective management. With aquatic ecosystems under threat from multiple stressors, we have designed a programme to equip you with the necessary interdisciplinary practical skills and theoretical understanding for direct employment or further research Why study with us? • The programme balances the latest in ecological theory with practical application in both freshwater and marine systems • Residential field-courses (Borneo, Western Isles of Scotland, Dorset, Cumbria) for practical, ‘hands-on’ training in the field • Taught by expert university staff with world class research profiles and guest lecturers from external organisations • Excellent research supervision undertaken either alongside established PhD students or with potential employers • Access to ‘state of the art’ analytical, mesocosm & temperature controlled facilities within The Centre for the Aquatic and Terrestrial Environment, developed from an initial investment by SRIF of £3M • Can be taken full-time, part-time or components as PG-Certificate For further information please contact: Postgraduate Administrator School of Biological and Chemical Sciences Tel: +44(0)20 7882 5287 Fax: +44 (0)20 7882 7732 email: sbcs-pgadmissions@qmul.ac.uk www.sbcs.qmul.ac.uk
