Aberystwyth University’s MSc in Environmental Monitoring and Analysis will equip you with thorough and highly practical training in the theories, methodologies and technologies required for monitoring and analysing environmental quality. This vocational Masters degree addresses a broad, interdisciplinary approach to geochemistry, combining elements of geology, environmental Earth sciences and physical geography. Candidates receive specialist practical experience in both field sampling and laboratory work, underpinned by solid theoretical expertise.

This balance of specialist knowledge and hands-on experience is proven to meet the industry’s demanding recruitment needs precisely. Graduates of this highly successful course are now employed across a range of organisations including the Environment Agency, other government agencies, water companies and private environmental consultancies. Others have undertaken their specialist study further in PhDs here at Aberystwyth and at other leading institutions.

Career opportunities

Every aspect of the Aberystwyth Masters in Environmental Monitoring and Analysis programme is designed to enhance your employability. Successful completion of this degree course alone achieves this by building your CV, but the greater strength lies in the enhanced knowledge, abilities and skills with which you will graduate. This course is vocational, meaning that every aspect of it directly relates to obtaining practical mastery of the field skills, lab disciplines and legislative understanding required to succeed in Environmental Monitoring and Analysis-related professions.

Employers value adaptable experience and a proven track record of applied specialist knowledge. This Masters degree course provides more than that; the dissertation task is set within the corporate context of the Geochemistry Research Group. This requires students to operate in a setting comparable to an independent agency, whilst managing their chosen technology and their own project deadlines. This practical working experience will greatly strengthen any application our students make upon entering both private sector and governmental employment.
