Programme structure

The integrated masters in Environmental Sciences degree is a four year full time programme. All students complete compulsory and core modules throughout the degree programme and select additional modules from their chosen pathway. In the third and fourth years, there is more scope for specialisation on the master’s programme, including a research module in year 3 and a major research project that accounts for half of the final year. This master’s programme therefore includes a much larger proportion of research than the BSc programme.
