MSci (Hons) Ocean Science
Ocean acidification, energy resources, coastal erosion and flooding are just some of the issues that make ocean science such an important component when addressing the world’s most pressing environmental, energy and construction challenges. This course allows you to tailor your study towards employment in a specific sector including oceanographic and environmental research and consultancy, marine renewable energy, marine conservation management, offshore exploration and hydrographic surveying.
In your first three years you have options across the marine science BSc’s in exploration and surveying, marine conservation, and oceanography and coastal processes. In your final year, you’ll develop expertise from your choice of three pathways: applied marine science, marine renewable energy and hydrography. Your final year provides the opportunity to undertake a project linked to one of our research groups or industrial partners working with established marine scientists in a wider context.
