Population and ecosystem health is by its nature interdisciplinary. It requires a tight weave of ideas from ecology, epidemiology, and genetics applied across a variety of domains including terrestrial and aquatic ecology, veterinary epidemiology and evolutionary biology.
Our expertise in population and ecosystems health lies within our Boyd Orr Centre, and concentrates on:
- population genetics and epidemiology
- epidemiology and population ecology
- population ecology and conservation
Our MSc (Research) includes both taught and research elements. You will be required to undertake 60 to 90 credits worth of taught courses as well as independent study which represents some contribution to knowledge.
Thesis length: 18,000-30,000 words (including references, bibliography and appendices).
