During the Marine Science and Climate Change programme at University of Gibraltar you will cover specialist subject areas and gain the skills required to tackle the complex issues associated with the sustainable development of marine ecosystems.
As well as access to cutting-edge facilities and learning resources at our Europa Point Campus, the iconic Straits of Gibraltar, a unique location for marine biological research, provides a natural laboratory for your studies. The Straits, and their surrounding area, have long been recognised for their marine biodiversity.
The programme is based on a series of modules in increasing levels of specialism.
You have the freedom to choose your exit award (Post Graduate Certificate, Post Graduate Diploma or full Master’s Degree).
- The first part of the programme will focus on oceanography and marine biology, research skills and methods, marine conservation, sustainability and management of marine ecosystems.
- The second part will concentrate on climate-change impacts, particularly climate change adaptation and ecosystem-based disaster-risk reduction.
- The final section of the Masters programme will involve an independent and original research project, which will be assessed via dissertation and viva.
