Description

Global ecological change is occurring at a rapid rate and we are seeing an unprecedented spread of diseases, collapses in biodiversity and disruption to ecosystems. We aim to understand not just patterns in the natural environment, but the ecological and evolutionary factors that drive them, from the behaviour of individual organisms to population- and whole-community dynamics.

You will study the concepts and theory that will help you understand factors underpinning global ecology and evolutionary change, including modern techniques for environmental process research, invasive species ecology and conservation genetics.  Students also learn techniques important for environmental policy and management. If you take the Postgraduate Certificate rather than the MSc in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, you will take four taught modules (15 credits each) over one term.

By choosing to study at a Russell Group university you will have access to excellent teaching and top class research.
