You will gain expertise in organism identification, population ecology and genetics, evolution, habitat management and behavioral ecology from experts in their fields. These skills will allow you to carry on into jobs such as environmental management, conservation, ecology, habitat and reserve management and environmental monitoring.
To help you with this, the course features two overseas, residential field courses. In the first year you will go to southern Spain while in the second year you will go to Mexico. The exercises on the field courses are designed to give you a taster of what working in conservation is like and to make sure you have the skills to go and do just that.
This degree has very strong links with local and international conservation organisations and zoos so you get to hear from those doing the job exactly what it entails and what it is like.
