Balancing Teaching and Research

Our comprehensive modules offer you a broad selection of specialist modules that allows you to focus on one of four distinctive streams, while also offering you the opportunity to take a limited number of modules from other specialist courses. Teaching methods include formal lectures, seminars, group design projects, and site visits. A major dissertation in the final stage of your MSc will require you to undertake Research in your specialist theme and this will help you develop your skills in reviewing literature and developing a project from concept to delivery.
