The MPhil in Water Science, Policy and Management aims to equip future water professionals with the blend of skills necessary to make a significant contribution to sustainable water management pathways across competing priorities of water for ecosystems, food, energy, economic growth and human consumption. The second year is devoted to researching and writing a thesis of 30,000 words. This two-year course comprises eight core modules within three thematic areas – water science, water and society, and water management. In the first year, students will take the coursework associated with the MSc in Water Science, Policy and Management. The water science theme develops knowledge and understanding in physical, chemical, ecological and epidemiological aspects of water science in temperate, tropical and semi-arid zones. It provides a foundation in basic processes in each key subject area, as well as interactions throughout the hydrological cycle, and the role of society in altering the 'natural' hydrological processes and function, and the impact this has on health.
