Our MSc Primate Conservation - Human Primate Interface course is ideal if you have a particular interest in the challenges that occur when primates and humans come face-to-face.

You can choose modules relating to the research opportunities and challenges around the Human Primate Interface. This includes a tailored module allowing you to focus on your chosen topic within conservation and ecology.
