UCL (University College London)
The programme engages with environmental, social and policy dimensions; it has a vocational orientation, with residential field-classes providing first-hand experience of practical conservation challenges; at the same time, the programme provides the scientific rigour needed for evidence-based analysis and understanding of the natural environment.
Normally a minimum of an upper 2nd Class Bachelor's degree in a relevant discipline from a UK university or an overseas qualification of an equivalent standard. Applications with relevant professional experience in conservation or environmental management will also be considered.
Core modules: Scientific basis for freshwater and coastal conservation; the rural matrix; environmental data acquisition and analysis; conservation and environmental management; options (subject to confirmation): wetlands; lakes; marine conservation; coastal change; environmental GIS; changing landscapes (nature, culture, politics); changing landscapes (nature conservation); aquatic macrophytes; politics of climate change; biological indicators of environmental change; non-biological indicators of environmental change.
The programme is delivered through a combination of lectures, seminars and field studies, including a residential field study to a coastal site in Norfolk and a residential field study in Snowdonia, as well as the option to join a two-week field-class to an overseas destination. Assessment is through coursework, essays and the dissertation, which includes a presentation of dissertation results.
