MPhil in Polar Studies
The Master of Philosophy in Polar Studies is a one-year graduate degree which offers a unique opportunity to conduct independent research in one of the foremost institutes for Polar Studies in the world.
The course offers specialist research and focused training in two areas:
- Social Sciences and Humanities, including the anthropology of northern peoples, and indigenous knowledge systems
- Polar Physical Sciences, focusing on remote sensing of polar environments, the high-latitude marine geological record, glaciology, and climate change
The course can also offer the opportunity to work with the unique collections of the Institute.
The main focus of the course is in the production of a 20,000 word dissertation, supervised by Institute staff. Many students treat this as a springboard towards a PhD degree.
