Soil Science

Format: Campus

Program Description:

The MSc degree in Soil Science offers an opportunity for graduate students to receive an advanced training in a subject not widely taught at undergraduate level. Understanding of soil processes and interactions with the wider biological and physicochemical systems is fundamental to sustainable development and environmental management. Soil Science offers an exciting range of specialisms, including cutting-edge biotechnology, environmental analysis and modelling opportunities. The main objective of the degree, therefore, is to provide a rigorous training in pure and applied aspects of modern soil science suitable for those intending to pursue a career in the environmental field, those already in relevant employment and those considering further research to PhD level. Teaching includes enhanced knowledge base learning, technical development and practical skills.
