This MPhil offers an 11-month programme of advanced study and research into the natural and anthropogenic causes and ecological and societal consequences of Holocene climate variability. The course is intended for students with a strong first degree in geography or a related discipline, such as environmental sciences and (paleo)climatology. The course consists of lectures, seminars, laboratory and methods practicals, a residential dissertation school, and a research dissertation. The residential school consists of an intense few days of individual and group learning, focused on developing the dissertation proposal and poster, as well as oral presentations.  A 15,000-word dissertation requires students to identify, design and independently execute a small, empirically-grounded research study related to the course. Students will be supervised through the process from initial question identification through to the design and execution of research.
