Master in Marine Mammal Science - entry September 2011

We are currently accepting applications for the 2011/12 entry to the Master
of Research (MRes) in Marine Mammal Science based at the University of St
Andrews in Scotland, UK. This is an intense, one-year Master's level course
intended to prepare students for professional careers in marine mammal
research and conservation. The programme is tailored to address the
scientific challenges of marine mammal ecology, behaviour and population
biology with strong components of analytical methodology, laboratory work,
and field study. The course is being taught by members of the Sea Mammal
Research Unit (SMRU), the School of Biology and the Centre for Research into
Ecological and Environmental Modelling (CREEM) which are part of the
Scottish Oceans Institute at the University of St Andrews. 

For detailed information about this unique programme, entry requirements and
