Course summary

We aim to graduate individuals who have a detailed understanding of all aspects of conservation science, including the founding principles of ecology, evolution, environmental management, and who can apply this understanding to wildlife conservation. This degree will develop the student’s intellectual and practical skills, as well as their numeracy, their communication and information technology (IT) abilities, their interpersonal and self-management skills and their professionalism in a context specific to the conservation world.

Students will have knowledge and understanding of:

  • The need for an interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary approach to the study and management of wildlife;
  • The issues concerning the monitoring and management of wildlife both for their intrinsic value and as a natural resource to be exploited in a sustainable and ethical manner;
  • The principles, nomenclature terminology and concepts of applied ecology, ecosystem functions, ecosystem services, environmental policy, conservation science;
  • The fundamental ecological, social and economic concepts and how they relate to wildlife conservation and management importance

In addition, there are careers open to graduates and postgraduates from any discipline. These include, for example, careers in management training, accountancy, teaching, nursing, social work, the police and the armed forces. However, employers are usually looking for general or transferable skills, and a Biological Sciences degree arguably provides a unique combination of these.
