International Graduate School
MSc in Biodiversity, Conservation and Management
The conservation of the Earth's remaining biodiversity is one of the most important challenges facing humanity. However, there are no easy solutions because biodiversity conservation has to operate in complex socio-economic, political, cultural and institutional environments.
Successful conservation practitioners must span academic disciplines and combine advanced social skills with intellectual rigour. They also need to work effectively in both a conventional office environment and some of the most inhospitable places on the planet.
Our one-year full-time MSc course develops knowledge and critical understanding of conservation and biodiversity science and practice, and the socio-economic, political, cultural and institutional environments within which policy and management decisions are made.
