The programme provides you with the skills, concepts and experience to understand all aspects of marine ecosystems and the pressures they face, ranging from overexploitation to climate change. Our interdisciplinary approach to the study of marine ecosystems, from rocky shores to open-oceans and from shallow surface seas to deep-water habitats, allows you to learn about a wide range of techniques. Marine biology is concerned with the study of all the flora and fauna that lives in this incredibly diverse but hostile environment. You will learn about the various “zones” and how they affect all aspects of our lives. The weather is the biggest influence on where we live and how we survive – it’s driven almost entirely by what happens in the ocean.
If you want to really understand the biggest and least controllable influence on the human race, this course is a great place to start. Enrol today.
