MPhil Earth And Environmental Sciences

If you're ready to take your expertise in Earth and Environmental Sciences into a postgraduate research degree, the University of Portsmouth is the perfect place to do it. 

100% of our impact case studies in Earth Systems and Environmental Sciences were rated as outstanding or very considerable in terms of their reach and significance in the most recent Research Excellence Framework (REF 2021) – and through our Earth and Environmental Sciences research, we're studying our planet and how life on Earth has evolved from its earliest beginnings to the present day.

With environmental crises such as climate change putting the future of the planet in jeopardy, we're using our findings to predict how the Earth may change in the future and researching what we can do to safeguard it. As a postgraduate researcher here, you could research subjects including crustal evolution, environmental modelling and monitoring, marine biogeochemistry and ecosystems, palaeontology, applied geoscience and applied physics.

Our students make lasting contributions to the field – like one of current PhD students, Emily Roberts, who has made headlines after discovering the first fossil plant gum on record.

When you study for a postgraduate research degree with us, you'll join our collaborative research community, and play your own part in turning our knowledge into action.
