Course summary

Make a difference to our beautiful, but threatened planet by studying our Conservation and Ecosystem Management MSc. It will develop your academic understanding, and your practical skills, relating to conservation, biodiversity and ecosystem management.

About this course

You will study biodiversity and conservation in the context of a range of UK ecosystems including woodland, grassland and moor.

You'll develop practical skills in habitat assessment and species identification. You will also expand your academic understanding, contribute to relevant research and meet local practitioners.

The course is suitable for graduates with a background in ecology, biology and environmental science, but also for people with an interest in wildlife who are seeking a career change towards conservation, habitat management or ecological consultancy.

We have strong links with public and private sector organisations including:

Northumberland National Park
Natural England
local Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty
local Wildlife Trusts
Forestry Commission
National Trust
local ecological consultancies

You will:

develop academic research and critical thinking skills as you complete a major conservation or biodiversity research project.
develop an understanding of the sector and its issues as we visit sites and welcome speakers from relevant and important organisations.
develop analytical and critical thinking skills as we debate the obvious questions like, ‘why do we conserve?’ along with deeper and more specific questions.
enhance your CV so that you are in a strong position in the job market, or so that you can embark upon a PhD. We work with our Careers Service to provide a careers event to improve your job application prospects. We work with external organisations to ensure you are thinking about career opportunities as early as possible
