These Master's degrees can be taken as part of a multidisciplinary modular scheme suitable for a range of professional groups, offered by the Faculty of Natural Sciences and the Faculty of Health and Human Sciences. The courses provide foundation studies in research methods and pathophysiology, with many optional courses covering a wide range of subjects. The two shared core courses in pathophysiology and research methods are undertaken by all students in the initial term of the first year, after which you can select from a range of optional courses according to your particular professional background and interests. (See page 200 for choices offered within the Faculty of Natural Sciences.) You can, with guidance, develop your own professional independent study course. There is also a compulsory research project which may be undertaken in a related area, based either in your workplace or at the University.
