Course content

Launched in 2000, the award winning MSc in Primate Conservation remains the only course internationally to address pressing issues in primate conservation throughout each module. Issues including habitat loss, illegal trade and human wildlife conflict issues as well as ways to mitigate these threats through population management, intervention and education are taught by world leaders who are all active in primate conservation in the field in Asia, Africa including Madagascar, and South America. The innovative and varied coursework provides students with direct training to work in conservation as a practitioner, advocate or academic.

Whether working in the lab, with local conservation groups (including zoos and NGOs), or in the field, you will find yourself in a collaborative and supportive environment, working with international scholars in primate conservation and gaining first-hand experience to enact positive change.
