Taught Masters

As a Masters student in the Lancaster Environment Centre, you will be trained by world-class scientists in a wide range of environmental, and related, disciplines.

‌Our schemes combine taught modules with a substantial research project, so you would directly benefit from the high quality research environment. Additionally, your training would enhance your transferable skills and make you highly employable for a career in research, consultancy or industry.

We regard fieldwork as an important part of learning about the environment and are fortunate to have a fantastic variety of areas of outstanding natural beauty and scientific interest on our doorstep. Depending on your area of study you may have the opportunity for field work in the Lake District, the Yorkshire Dales, Morecambe Bay, the Forest of Bowland or further afield, such as on Mount Etna in Sicily or in West Africa.

Schemes run over one year (full-time) or two years (part-time).

Each programme has its own Director of Study who is in charge of their programme's design, strategy and delivery.  You will study a range of modules as part of your course, some examples of which can be found in the 2015-16 Module Outline booklet (subject to change and availability).

A full list of all our Taught Masters and their course structure can be found under ‘Courses’.
