Plant Science studies the structure and function of plants and the ways in which they relate to their environment. The applications of plant science are far reaching and impact upon areas such as medicine, pharmaceuticals, agriculture and conservation.
The major areas of plant science are explored at an advanced level in this programme through a wide range of modules. These encompass the molecular biology, biochemistry, physiology, genetics, evolution, ecology and environmental factors affecting plants.
This four year programme, as an MSci integrated undergraduate Master’s course, draws on our prestigious and long-standing expertise in postgraduate teaching. It offers you the chance to gain cutting-edge knowledge, highly developed practical skills, plus a demonstrated ability to work independently. In addition to boosting your employability, the four-year MSci is an excellent route into further study for a PhD, should you wish to develop your research interests.
