Course content

he course provides both a secure foundation in the scientific principles of conservation and the opportunity to specialise in particular areas via the selection of relevant modules and the research project. Areas of potential specialisation include habitat restoration, land and water management, environmental economics, habitat and biodiversity management and application of GIS and remote sensing. There is a compulsory residential field course in ID skills, which takes place in the Cairngorm National Park. The course is equally relevant to recent and mature graduates seeking a career in conservation science, governmental and non-governmental organisations.

Our course gives students:

  • An understanding of the scientific principles that underpin conservation and sustainability
  • An understanding of the economic, social, political and legal frameworks for conservation
  • A comprehensive training in relevant practical, investigative, research and generic skills.

Course Objectives

Graduates from this course will have gained knowledge in the broad field of conservation science, including collecting and analysing relevant data for sustainable decision-making and transferable skills relevant to future employment at national and international level.
