MSc Conservation Management

An understanding of Biodiversity and its management is increasingly important. This is reflected in the various employment opportunities with consultancies, local councils, national agencies and voluntary bodies. However what is increasingly becoming an all graduate profession is rarely taught to any depth on undergraduate courses.

The Conservation Management course is characterised by its synthesis of the expertise of the field biologist with practical experience of managing habitats allied to a clear theoretical framework. An emphasis is placed on fieldwork, biological identification skills and experience of a broad range of management issues.

The course is suitable for recent graduates, more experienced conservation workers or those seeking a career change. The programme is also ideal for teachers wishing develop skills and knowledge in the environmental and ecological subject areas.
