Course content

On this course, you’ll gain an advanced, global outlook on conservation. You learn positive approaches you can use to address conservation challenges.
In the face of global change, there’s never been a greater need for the knowledge and research skills that you’ll develop on this course. These skills will enable you to address the environmental changes facing us today.
We are part of the Sussex Sustainability Research Programme (SSRP). The SSRP provides an excellent interdisciplinary research environment through the School of Life Sciences, the School of Global Studies, Sussex Law School, SPRU – Science Policy Research Unit and the Institute of Developmental Studies (IDS).

We have reviewed all our courses to ensure the best possible learning experience for September, taking account of latest information and advice in relation to COVID-19.
