Course summary

THE COURSE

This programme enables students to progress from the FdSc qualification to a full BSc Honours Degree in Wildlife and Conservation Management.

Knowledge, understanding and skills gained will be developed and applied to explore current and future issues in wildlife and conservation management in greater depth and consider solutions.

The programme aims to:

  • Develop students’ independent research skills and consolidate relevant data gathering and analysis through the completion of a dissertation.
  • Develop students’ ability to manage wildlife and landscapes in the context of pressures from a range of human sources, critically analysing problems and solutions.
  • Develop students’ critical awareness of global issues and solutions in global conservation biology.
  • Provide students with the ability to become effective project managers within the sector.

Graduates from the course will be able to demonstrate key skills required by employers for more senior roles within the sector.

LEARNING AND TEACHING APPROACH

This programme is delivered with a variety of learning and teaching approaches to include all student learning styles and preferences. There is a strong emphasis on active learning with seminars, workshops, field work and site visits, case studies, work-based learning, independent learning, formative assessment and guest speaker sessions. These are combined with theory lectures that aim to deliver the core content and provide the underpinning knowledge.

Teaching methods focus on facilitating a student-centred approach to enhance the independent learning that takes place outside of the classroom. Independence and the ability to make decisions, problem solve and manage projects are required in the conservation and ecology sector.

Students can choose to study at the Bishop Burton campus in East Yorkshire or at the Riseholme campus, which is in Lincolnshire.

CAREERS

Careers are available with conservation non-governmental organisations (NGOs) in the UK and abroad, conservation contractors, and public bodies such as local authorities, the Forestry Commission and Natural England, plus many more.
