Course summary

Overview

We’ve offered our innovative Environmental Management course with a specialisation in Conservation since 2013. With this Masters degree, you’ll gain the scientific knowledge and learn the approaches for conservation science and practice.

You’ll get the opportunity to specialise in particular areas with the selection of relevant modules and in your research project. Areas of potential specialisation include:

  • ecosystem services
  • environmental economics
  • conservation conflicts
  • habitat and biodiversity management
  • application of geographic information systems (GIS) and remote sensing

You’ll get plenty of practice in environmental conservation and management field skills, as there’s a compulsory residential field trip which takes place in the Cairngorm National Park. We also offer a two week field course on tropical ecology and conservation in Gabon. Find out more about the Gabon field course.

This course is relevant to both recent and mature graduates who are seeking a career in environmental management and conservation science, either in governmental or non-governmental organisations. Graduates from this course are knowledgeable in the broad field of conservation science. They have skills in collecting and analysing relevant data for sustainable decision-making, as well as transferable skills relevant to future employment at national and international level. Students can also exit with PGCert and PGDip awards.

Course objectives

Our course will give you:

  • an understanding of the scientific principles that underpin environmental management
  • an understanding of the ecological, economic, social, political and legal frameworks for conservation
  • a sound training in the relevant practical, investigative, research and all-encompassing skills that are the most sought after by employers
