Course summary

The Conservation Management of African Ecosystems programme is a multidisciplinary programme aimed at students wishing to develop a career in conservation management in universities, government departments, parastatal conservation organisations, NGOs and other organisations. This training aims to support the development of national conservation research and policy that is knowledge-based and built on cutting-edge methods and analysis. The programme has the option of working closely with our African partners, in particular the Nelson Mandela African Institution for Science and Technology (NM-AIST) in Arusha, Tanzania.

WHY THIS PROGRAMME

  • Gain insight into the principles of conservation management, biodiversity measurement, applied ecology, the human dimension of conservation
  • Learn skills in the application of economic tools for conservation, conservation genetics and the epidemiology of diseases that threaten endangered species.
  • Develop competence in study design, data analysis, scientific writing and communication skills in a quantitative and scientific context to enable independent research and publication of high quality outputs, as well as communicating to a broader range of audiences (e.g. for government policy making and public outreach).
  • Experience training in a range of specialised skills, techniques, practices and analyses required for state-of-the-art research and management in conservation biology.
  • Opportunities exist for in-depth study of a specific conservation management issue through a research project involving critical evaluation of the literature, collection and/or analysis of data, and interpretation of results in the context of conservation.
  • The University of Glasgow has a wide range of experience, expertise and long-term cooperation with partners in northern Tanzania offering students the opportunity to benefit from well-established teaching and support at the Institute of Biodiversity, Animal Health and Comparative Medicine at the University of Glasgow, and combining that with research work in one of the major conservation areas of Tanzania.
