University of Southampton
2nd Class Honours degree or equivalent in any scientific discipline; minimum AS level mathematics or equivalent.
To highlight the specialisations possible through the option modules of the programme, we have developed "pathways" of suggested module choices, which include:
•Marine Biology and Ecology
•Physical Oceanography and Climate Dynamics
•Marine Geology and Geophysics
•Marine Resources and Law
Students can either follow one of these "pathways", or mix options from different pathways, where the timetable allows, to pursue broader interests.
Employment in the marine environmental sector is a common destination for MSc Oceanography graduates, and as the degree is a "conversion" to marine science from "pure" science backgrounds, around one-third of graduates also go on to PhD research in marine sciences.
Biological oceanography; chemical oceanography; marine geology; physical oceanography; plus key skills and literature review; plus 2 optional modules from: applied and marine geophysics; biogeochemical cycles in the earth system; coastal sediment dynamics; computational data analysis for geophysicists and ocean scientists; deep-sea ecology; geodynamics and solid earth geophysics; international maritime and environmental law; introducing remote sensing of the oceans; large-scale ocean processes; microfossils, environment and time; zooplankton ecology and processes; plus 3 optional modules from: applied biogeochemistry and pollution; applied coastal sediment dynamics; climate dynamics; ecological modelling; environmental radioactivity and radiochemistry; global climate cycles; global ocean monitoring; radar remote sensing of the oceans; reproduction in marine invertebrates; sea floor exploration and surveying 2; structure and dynamics of marine communities; UN convention on the law of the sea.
