Biology

The benefits of a Masters extend beyond improving your earning potential. They can provide you with personal and professional skills to accelerate your development. They are also an opportunity to differentiate yourself from your peers, many of whom will have similar A-level and undergraduate qualifications.

Study in biology can lead to careers in health care, teaching, environmental conservation, and biotechnology. It can also form the base from which to pursue doctoral study in the areas of clinical or research work.

Master in Environmental Microbiology

Programme Length:

MSc 12 months full-time PgDip 9 months full-time

Aims

The MSc degree in Environmental Microbiology was established in 1992 and is unique in the United Kingdom. Our aim is to provide wide-ranging training in environmental microbiology, applicable both to students with previous knowledge of a relevant subject and to those with little background in environmental microbiology. We aim to provide students with theoretical knowledge, practical skills and an appreciation of the application of the subject. We also develop students' communication and generic skills. ‘Environmental Microbiology is the study of microorganisms that inhabit the Earth and their roles in carrying out processes in both natural and human-made systems’. In this subject there is much emphasis on interfaces between environmental sciences and microbial ecology. There has also been an increased interest in environmental microbiology since the late 1980s resulting from the application of novel molecular techniques. An environmental microbiologist thus needs a good grounding in basic microbiology and molecular biology, but this must be combined with knowledge of environmental science. The School of Biological Sciences has an international reputation for excellence in inter-disciplinary research in plant/soil/microbe systems designed to underpin environmental studies, and it was graded 5 in the 2001 Research Assessment Exercise and this excellence was confirmed in the 2008 RAE. We have an international reputation for research into the remediation of contaminated land and molecular microbial ecology, and we have research expertise in environmental microbiology, microbial ecology, soil science, plant science, environmental science, biogeochemistry,...
