Discovery and the natural world

Our global challenge of discovery and the natural world guides the way we work together across subject boundaries to find solutions to some of humanities biggest problems – like air pollution and climate change, species extinction and overpopulation.

Find the right course for you

To help you search your study options, we’ve grouped our Master’s courses relevant to discovery and the natural world by theme, rather than by department.

These broader categories are designed to help you explore all the ways you could contribute to making the world a better place – it may not be in a way you previously considered or in the department that matches your first degree.
