New taught MSc programmes open for application

Two new taught MSc programmes in Animal Behaviour and Agricultural Ecosystems within the School of Biological Sciences are now open to applicants.

The MSc in Animal Behaviour builds on the world-class reputation of the School in all aspects of behavioural research, and presents a unique opportunity for students to strengthen their knowledge and confidence in the study of how animals interact with both the physical and the social worlds they inhabit.

The MSc in Agricultural Ecosystems: Management for Sustainability, led by experts in the field, will provide teaching on cutting-edge developments in agricultural ecology, biodiversity conservation, plant molecular biology and physiology.  As the human population grows, food security, sustainable production and maintaining biodiversity and ecosystem services are increasingly important, and this course offers learning opportunities that are both relevant and timely.

Both courses will start in October 2013, full-time for one year with a strong research component.

CAVEAT: Although the application process is now open, applicants should note that these programmes are currently in development, and their running is subject to final academic approval and the number of applicants recruited.
