Environmental Earth Sciences and Geology combines tools provided by Physics, Chemistry, Biology and others to study the geologic environment and to use the accompanying principles in solving environmental problems. By studying all layers of the Earth, atmosphere, hydrosphere, lithosphere and biosphere, this discipline manages to analyse the interaction of the human with the environment, to identify the issues that we are confronted with and to find means and ways to solve or minimize those issues.
Each of the aforementioned focus areas, the layers of the Earth, presents several specialization opportunities for prospective students of this discipline, with majors ranging from Atmospheric Chemistry to Biological Oceanography or Geodynamics. Providing courses like Physical Geology, Oceanography, Energy and Mineral Resources, Atmospheric Processes, Geochemistry and Sedimentology, the field of Environmental Earth Sciences and will prepare the student to become a professional in environmental processes that can work in environmental and geotechnical research or consulting.
The Graduate Certificate in Environmental Science is the first award level of an articulated program which gives qualified applicants the opportunity for study at progressive postgraduate levels in Environmental Science.
Academic training in state of the art in urban environmental research, including a cross-disciplinary outlook, and practical decision-making and problem solving skills.
Do you wish to contribute to finding solutions for issues related to planet Earth? Do you have a background in natural sciences? Then the programme Earth and Environment is an excellent choice!
This long-established programme examines the ways in which businesses can improve their environmental performance and enhance their social responsibility. Uniquely based outside of a business school context, this programme adopts an interdisciplinary approach to the complex relationship between business and the different dimensions of sustainability.
The course provides training in all aspects of applied structural geology and seismic techniques for direct entry into the hydrocarbons or mining industries, with starting salaries of £30-35k per annum, or alternatively into PhD research.
The purpose of Environmental Risk is to provide a interdisciplinary, international master's program in environmental risk with the goal to provide graduates with the necessary scientific background and tools to bring environmental science into the assessment and management of environmental issues.
The MSc in Exploration Geophysics has been running for over 35 years. It provides students with a broad range of practical skills underpinned by a theoretical understanding that will equip them to become professionals in their chosen field. Demand for graduates remains high, with virtually all graduates finding employment within geophysics or related areas. Various scholarships are available.
Engineering geology is the application of geological principles to Civil and Mining Engineering (amongst others). The subject has expanded in recent years to include aspects of Engineering Geomorphology, Quaternary Geology, Contaminated Land, Risk Analysis, Geohazard and Resilience management. Engineering Geologists are found worldwide working on problems as varied as foundation and mine design to the assessment of seismic and landslide risk.
Museum Studies and Cultural Heritage Management Non-Thesis MA Program will not recruit students for 2013-2014 Academic Year.
Our proposed M.A. program is of high standards, dedicated to training of students in a wide variety of topics related to prehistory, environmental archaeology, subsistence, past adaptations to changing environments, and the varied exact and natural sciences involved in the research of such topics.
Graduate study with concentrations in chemistry, earth science (including a fully online option), physics, and physical sciences (including teaching and non-teaching options) is offered within the Master of Science degree.
This programme provides a unique combination of training on the physical, social and policy aspects of climate change and on environmental sustainability. It provides students with a solid foundation in the physical science of climate change, climate change impacts, adaptation to and mitigation of climate change, as well as in broader debates on sustainability.
