Postgraduate Taught (PGT) courses

We currently offer three postgraduate taught courses, listed in the icon row below. The two research-based courses (MSc Geoscience Research and MSc/MA in Geographical and Environmental Research) include many project-led research opportunities, and feature projects based at Keele, projects abroad, and industrial placements - please see the list accessed from the "Postgraduate taught course projects" link below for more information on these.

A research-focused course with industry and international placement opportunities designed for a career in research, academia or a discipline related work setting.

For those interested in a career in environmental science, policy or planning. Graduates of this course have gone on to a wide range of careers from local government, environmental consultances and charities, to research.

The course consists of five modules spread over three semesters, including an extensive research project in geoscience, environmental science or physical geography.
