Study type Research


Develop your understanding of the natural world by conducting an in-depth research project in a topic you are passionate about within ecology, evolution or behaviour with the support of world-leading researchers.

The ecology, evolution and behaviour of organisms are key elements of the natural world we see around us. Improving our knowledge of these topics is important in mitigating the impacts of environmental change, improving food and water security, increasing animal welfare and explaining the diversity of life we see across the globe.

This research master’s gives you the opportunity to develop your understanding of the natural world by undertaking an independent research project in a topic within ecology, evolution or behaviour. You will undertake this research project with the support of a dedicated research-active supervisor who is an expert in the field. They will guide and support you as you develop and conduct your project, giving you the opportunity to take ownership of a piece of research that you are passionate about. Supervisors will be members of staff from the dynamic and vibrant research community within the Department of Life Sciences. This includes world-leading researchers from the Centre for Research in Ecology, Evolution and Behaviour and the Centre for Research in Evolutionary, Social and Interdisciplinary Anthropology. Details of potential supervisors and research projects can be found here.

The course will provide you with an in-depth knowledge of your chosen topic. In addition, it also places an emphasis on providing you with transferrable skills in areas such as project management, data analysis and communication that will help you develop a future career in further research, non-academic or commercial sectors.
