MSc Marine Conservation
The impact of human activity on our marine ecosystems has become more evident and high profile in recent years, such as from overfishing, habitat destruction, pollution, coastal development, plastics and climate change. So what do we do about it – how can we preserve and recover marine habitats and species populations while also allowing sustainable use and exploitation of our seas?
This MSc programme is taught by the leading experts in the field – we are ranked #1 in the world for the impact of our marine research in support of ocean global sustainability goals (Times Higher Education Impact Rankings 2021). It focuses specifically on marine conservation in practice and is targeted at producing the next generation of ocean guardians with the skill set to address this question. MSc Marine Conservation does not have any exams within its range of assessments.
The only marine conservation masters programme in the UK to be delivered in partnership with a suite of regional, national and international marine conservation practitioners.
