Course summary

Our Master’s degree provides a unique training experience for someone seeking to develop a successful career in wildlife conservation.

Course overview

The rapid decline of global biodiversity has made wildlife conservation a crisis discipline. This has led to growing local, national, and international demand for specialists with academic and practical wildlife conservation skills. Our postgraduate course provides an opportunity to learn from conservation- and research-active scientists with UK and international experience.

Why study this course with us?

We aim to build on and consolidate your existing skills/knowledge and offer exposure to advanced concepts and practical applications in wildlife conservation. This will be done through exploration of our expertise in field and lab-based research on key species and habitats, in the UK and further afield.

Our staff are engaged in pioneering projects locally, nationally, and globally, and have led the development of wildlife crime as an academic subject area. We are also involved in conservation of globally threatened species such as Eld's deer, Grenada dove and Hispaniolan Amazon.

You will be engaged in a peer-based learning environment that includes field and lab work, which will provide insights into key research in wildlife conservation. We will also focus on the development of your professional skills and profile for your future career and encourage links and networking opportunities with practitioners in the field.

Assessment

Assessment is via lab/essay assignments; critical assessments/reviews; research/funding proposals; multiple-choice quizzes/short answer questions; field reports; individual/group oral presentations; and preparation and presentation of posters. There are no final examinations.
