This masters in oceanography is in two parts: formal instruction (including lectures, practicals and boatwork) followed by individual research. In semester one all students complete a series of basic introductory modules that cover all the disciplines of oceanography. Boat-based practicals in local waters will introduce you to some of the measurement and analysis techniques in the marine sciences. As well as these compulsory modules, you will also study two optional modules.
Along with a choice of options in semester two, you will work on a literature review to provide a basis for your research project work. Following the end of semester two, all students work full-time on their chosen research project, producing a final dissertation by the end of September.
Staff at NOCS offer a wide range of project topics in their area of research, which could involve laboratory work, analysis of existing data sets, or fieldwork. You can also suggest your own ideas for research, after consulting with your tutor.
