Natural Sciences

Our Natural Sciences Masters course is ideal if you wish to study more than one area of science while retaining a larger degree of flexibility than traditional joint degrees allow. You’ll study modules from a minimum of two of the main disciplines: Biology, Chemistry, Computing, Environmental Sciences, Mathematics and Physics. And you’ll have the opportunity to study specialist topics as your degree programme develops. Whichever subjects you choose, you will be learning at the forefront of your chosen disciplines with our stimulating, research-led teaching programme. Our programme will give you an appreciation of complex concepts from across contemporary science. To give you an example: you could find yourself examining the biological complexities of how a virus spreads through a population, along with the computational techniques necessary to predict and illustrate it. You’ll experience what is required of a competent scientist; from the deliberation needed to design an experiment, including consideration of the results, to the excitement of discovering something new. This highly competitive degree provides you with vital knowledge of several scientific disciplines and the flexibility of the degree allows you to direct your learning around your own interests or career goals. You’ll acquire technical skills and subject-specific knowledge as well as transferable skills desired by employers including high levels of literacy and numeracy, data collection, collation and management, understanding and analysing complex systems, devising strategies of intervention, critical thinking, time management, organisational and analytical skills, teamwork and communication skills. In your final year you’ll specialise in at least two of the subjects, and you’ll complete a Master’s level independent research project, with academic supervision. **Course Structure** This four-year course is made up of optional modules from across the Faculty of Science. It will give you the opportunity to develop your existing scientific knowledge, while discovering new avenues of scientific study. In your second and third years you’ll have the chance to choose from a diverse range of modules from science schools across the faculty; from topics covering artificial intelligence to quantum mechanics and symmetry. In your final year you’ll take at least two subjects through to Masters level, and you’ll also undertake a substantial research project, which will reflect your own scientific interests. **Disclaimer** Course details are subject to change.
