What Will You Study

Our integrated Masters programmes in Environmental Biology build on the three-year BSc degrees by providing a fourth year of Masters-level study. This final year takes advantage of the wealth of relevant Masters modules available in different disciplines within the Lancaster Environment Centre, ranging from Crop Protection to Environmental Management.

The first three years of the MSci degrees follow the same curriculum as the BSc degrees. In the fourth year, you will take the modules Biological Effects of Air Pollution and Climate Change, plus three further optional taught modules and an extended research project. This project will provide you with a real in-depth taste of scientific laboratory or field research, which will be invaluable experience for those considering a PhD or other research careers.

As with the BSc degree, the MSci scheme is available with a Study Abroad variant where you spend your second year in a partner university in the USA, Canada or Australasia.
