Climate change and the impact on our environment is one of the greatest challenges of our time.
Scientists and grassroots activists now influence government policy, while the creative community seeks ways to respond to the movement and broadcast its message ever further. Our unique and thought-provoking Masters courses will thrust you into a world of environmental study in areas you may not have considered before.
"I really enjoyed the practical side of the course – going outside to research and write. It was investigative and encouraged a creative approach. I loved it! I was also excited to take modules across departments – I studied Conservation Management and Pollution, and also took a course on French. My husband and I spend our lives in Brittany, France, where I am a full-time gardener surrounded by countryside and dairy farms, as well as Southampton, UK, where I do voluntary work and participate in the creative group Waterside Writers."
Our research degrees provide opportunities for developing novel ideas and inter-disciplinary projects. Our staff have expertise and can offer supervision of projects across areas such as environmental microbiology, marine biology, ecology, photosynthesis, plant productivity, sustainable agriculture, environmental resource management, pollution, aerosol science and the impact of nanoparticles on the environment.

Following the impact of the pandemic, we made changes to our teaching and assessment to ensure our current students could continue with their studies uninterrupted and safely. These changes included courses being taught through blended delivery, normally including some face-to-face teaching, online provision, or a combination of both across the year.
The teaching and assessment methods listed on each course page show what is currently planned for 2021 entry; changes may be necessary if, by the beginning of this course, we need to adapt the way we’re delivering them due to the external environment, and to allow you to continue to receive the best education possible safely and seamlessly.
