MSc - Master of Science
Water Management Sustainability
This programme is designed to enable students to develop an in-depth and critical understanding of contemporary water management challenges.
Water is fundamental to many of the UN's Sustainable Development Goals including climate, energy, the environment, food security, poverty, equality and health. The management of water resources therefore requires an understanding of complex environmental, economic, social and political challenges, which is what this MSc programme is designed to provide.
In just 12-months (or 24 months if studying part-time) you will gain the skills and knowledge required to solve complex issues in sustainable water management, including water security, the impacts of climate and land use change on water resources, flood risk, water pollution, maintaining ecosystem services, and related management approaches.
Choose from 3 Pathways:
We offer you three distinct pathways, so that you can choose your courses based on your particular interests:
Hydrological sciences pathway – with a focus on the technical and environmental science skills
Water and Society pathway – with a focus on socio-economic aspects of sustainability
Open pathway – a combined mix of both hydrological sciences and socio-economic aspects
The School of Geosciences has a strong international profile in water resource research, which provides the foundation for this Masters programme. Moreover, the University of Aberdeen also has excellent interdisciplinary strengths in cognate areas of water science, policy and law spread across various Schools, which contribute a strong interdisciplinary dimension to the programme through the provision of optional courses.
