Marine Environmental Studies programme offered at the Bangor University is for students who are interested in marine environmental science, management and policy. 


This degree is a fully integrated marine science course which incorporates all aspects of the marine system - physical, chemical, biological, and geological – with, in addition, management issues, such as management of the coastal zone, environmental policy, and sustainable development. 

The Marine Environmental Studies  course covers the whole ocean system, but concentrates on the coastal and shelf seas, since these are the focus of socio-economic activity and are the most susceptible to climatic and human-induced change. It is suitable for students both with and without mainstream science backgrounds. 

Why choose Bangor University for this Marine Environmental Studies course?

  • The School of Ocean Sciences is one of the largest university centres teaching marine sciences in Britain and is among the biggest in Europe.
  • In addition, other Schools at Bangor contribute expertise in terrestrial environmental science, natural resource management and environmental law.
  • We have unrivalled local access to the sea and seashore, ideal for developing skills in estuaries, on the seashore and at sea.


This course is intended for students who wish to pursue careers in administrations that require expert knowledge of marine science and its socio-economic implications at local and regional levels, such as conservation organisations, local authorities, government advisory bodies, the media and pressure groups.
