Professional Doctorate in Environment, Geography and Geosciences PhD, MPhil


    About This Professional Doctorate

    Course Description

    Overview

    If you're ready to take your expertise in Earth and Environmental Sciences into a postgraduate research degree, the University of Portsmouth is the perfect place to do it. 

    Seventy-two per cent (72%) of our research outputs in Earth Systems and Environmental Sciences were classed as world leading or internationally excellent in the Research Excellence Framework 2014 – and through our Earth and Environmental Sciences research, we're studying our planet and how life on Earth has evolved from its earliest beginnings to the present day.

    With environmental crises such as climate change putting the future of the planet in jeopardy, we're using our findings to predict how the Earth may change in the future and researching what we can do to safeguard it. As a postgraduate researcher here, you could research subjects including crustal evolution, environmental modelling and monitoring, marine biogeochemistry and ecosystems, palaeontology, applied geoscience and applied physics.

    Our students make lasting contributions to the field – like one of current PhD students, Emily Roberts, who has made headlines after discovering the first fossil plant gum on record.

    When you study for a postgraduate research degree with us, you'll join our collaborative research community, and play your own part in turning our knowledge into action.
