Course summary

Overview

Gain an understanding of the application of animal behaviour to conservation and develop the practical skills you need for a career in animal conservation. You'll train in the technologies and scientific methods used in animal behaviour research and how these can be applied to solve modern conservation problems.

Recent developments in conservation biology have emphasised the need for conservation scientists to utilise knowledge and practical skills from animal behaviour research to enable us to develop effective solutions to the loss of biodiversity. If you are passionate about animals and their conservation, our exciting master’s course will provide you the opportunity to develop the skills and knowledge necessary for a career in animal conservation. Through consultation with international conservation organisations our master’s course has been designed to equip graduates with practical and analytical skills that can be applied to solve real world conservation problems.

Assessment

Your work will be assessed in a range of ways to reflect the scope and aims of our course. These include written assignments such as scientific reports and essays, fieldwork, case studies, group work and presentations.

Careers

Our graduates build successful careers in many roles including conservation biologist, scientist or curator at a zoo, conservation educator, ecotourism or environmental consultancy. Several graduates also go on to study for a PhD. As a conservationist you can choose work with many organisations, from private companies to NGOs and government departments. You're also in the perfect position to continue your academic career and move up to our Animal and Environmental Sciences PhD.
