School of GeoSciences

MSc Environmental Protection & Management

Develop strategies to protect our natural environments with this Masters degree, through an understanding of natural resource management and the processes that cause environmental degradation.

The School of GeoSciences has a long history of collaboration with Scotland's Rural College (SRUC) and other major research institutes, each of which have a strong interest in the science related to pollution in rural areas.

Deforestation and soil erosion, human use of natural resources, the release of potentially toxic compounds and pathogens and the increase in greenhouse gases are all examples of pressures that have serious consequences for all life on Earth.
