Description

The factors affecting the wider environment are constantly increasing and range from agriculture and forestry to recreation, urban development and population growth. These in turn have knock-on effects such as climate change, water and food shortages, habitat and species loss and the impact of non-native species.

One of the areas where these factors come together is in the field of wildlife and conservation management where the public use of the countryside interacts with professional land managers and can result in conflict.

This programme encompasses a broad range of topics and land uses ranging from conservation management to rural land use planning and interpretation to land-use history. 

Applications are accepted from those either with or without specifically related previous qualifications - previous students have included graduates of History, Education, Business Management and Engineering, as well as Biological and Natural Sciences. 

Non-graduate entrants have included students with significant experience in aspects such as countryside rangering, town & country planning and ecology.

The MSc/PgDip/PgCert Wildlife and Conservation Management is validated by the University of Glasgow.

Please note: This course may require you to attend two study weekends at our Aberdeen campus.
