Program overview

On the oceanography pathway you will acquire a broad interdisciplinary understanding of the ocean environment from a physical, chemical and biological perspective. The oceanography route is suitable if you don’t have a strong background in mathematics, physics or chemistry as remedial courses are provided. Across this degree programme, you will gain an understanding of how the climate is changing, how the atmosphere and oceans transport heat in the climate system, how nutrients and carbon are cycled over the globe, how plankton growth and fisheries are sustained, the effects of ocean acidification, and how life operates in the dynamic ocean environment. This degree programme has an important focus on practical aspects of marine science and will provide grounding in hands-on quantitative studies of biological, chemical and physical marine science. There will be the opportunity to participate in field/project work throughout the course of your studies, as well as a full sea practical during Year Three. You will undertake a major research project in your final year.

Career opportunities

There has never been a better time to study Ocean Sciences: to understand how the oceans are warming, where sea level is rising, how the oceans are taking up carbon from the atmosphere, and how these changes are affecting plankton and marine life. Our degree programmes are designed to provide you with the skills to tackle these global environmental challenges. The vast majority of our recent graduates gain employment within a degree-related field or continue further within education and research after graduation.
