This Ocean Sciences (Hons) degree from University of Liverpool is based on the same multidisciplinary approach as the three-year (F700) programme. In year four we go on to provide you with higher-level skills and knowledge required to work in a research or commercial environment and address the biggest challenges in ocean science. There is a strong emphasis on numerical skills, hands-on laboratory and fieldwork, and independent study.
The first three years follow BSc (Hons) degree programmes offered in ocean sciences, developing a strong, multidisciplinary foundation of knowledge and skills. Semester one of year four is focused on broadening your knowledge of ocean research, strengthening data analysis skills, writing and reviewing research ideas, and discussing current research issues in ocean science.
With the environmental challenges facing the planet, there has never been a better time to study programmes in the ocean sciences: to understand the drivers of climate change, how the oceans are responding to our warming climate, why and where sea level is rising, and how these changes are affecting ecosystems on land and in the ocean. Our degree programmes are designed to provide you with the skills to tackle these global environmental challenges.
