MSc - Master of Science
Environmental Science Environmental Studies Climatology Molecular Biology
Our Environmental Bioscience in a Changing Climate MSc provides a timely and integrated perspective on environmental bioscience, management, societal matters and regulations. Study at the University of Warwick's School of Life Science, ranked 2nd in the UK for Agriculture.
Escalating rates of environmental and climate change are forcing us to re-evaluate our management of agricultural and natural habitats. The competing demands on agricultural land for food production and for bioenergy provision must be reconciled with environmental stewardship and mitigation of climate change. This MSc provides a timely and integrated perspective on environmental bioscience, management, societal matters and regulation as these relate to issues such as sustainable production of food and provision of ecosystem services.
You will be taught by a multidisciplinary teaching faculty including staff from Life Sciences and Warwick Business School, joined by lecturers with internationally acknowledged academic, industrial and government expertise.
Teaching is typically by facilitated sessions, including interactive lectures, short question and answer sessions and interactive workshops/tutorials. Individual and team learning will be used for case study analysis.
Assessment is continuous and varies between modules. It typically includes essays, seminar presentations, practical reports, oral evaluation and assessed group work. The project will be assessed by a seminar presentation and either a 15,000 word thesis or a 6,000 word journal article.
