University of York
Marine Environmental Management
This course will equip graduates for careers within non-governmental conservation organisations, government environmental, conservation or fishery agencies and environmental consultancy companies. It also provides a firm foundation from which to launch an academic career. During the course, students will be thoroughly grounded in environmental problems affecting the oceans and will discover the latest thinking in how to manage marine resources. The course will place a strong emphasis on the importance of understanding marine ecosystem structure, function and processes and how human activities and global change are affecting these. It will also consider the socio-economic implications of these. The course will enable students to develop their research and practical skills to a high level. These skills will be built through the dissertation project, a "term paper" which is written on an issue that is suggested by the student and a summer placement at an organisation outside the University of York. For their placement, students undertake a study of relevance to marine environmental management, which they write into a report that is assessed for their degree. Institutions where placements can be done include government agencies, NGOs, other universities or research institutes.
A range of scholarships and studentships are available at postgraduate level. Some scholarships are funded by the University (such as the York Master's Opportunity Scholarship) and some are funded by Research Councils, alumni, businesses and charities. Please check with the provider for details.
