MSc Degree in Planetary Science

UCL Department of Physics and Astronomy in collaboration with the UCL Institute of Origins is now offering a new interdisciplinary MSc Degree in Planetary Science.

"Exploring Other Worlds Through An Interdisciplinary Curriculum

The MSc programme in Planetary Science has a curriculum which is drawn from a variety of academic departments within UCL, including Physics and Astronomy, Space and Climate Physics, Earth Sciences and Physiology and Cell and Developmental Biology. The programme thus has a strong interdisciplinary flavour, in line with the ethos of UCL's Centre for Planetary Sciences. The combination of taught courses and project work allows prospective students to study a wide variety of topics related to planetary and space environments, such as: planetary interiors, atmospheres and magnetospheres; the impact of the space environment on human physiology and life; and the application of current knowledge to investigations of extrasolar planets - worlds in other stellar systems."
