Applied Ecology

Our MSc in Applied Ecology provides students with the advanced knowledge and skills required for employment in all areas of practical ecology and conservation. Students follow a curriculum with a highly practical emphasis and undertake hands-on exercises in field and laboratory settings. In the field, you will cover identification skills for a wide range of species in several key taxonomic groups as well as industry-standard survey techniques such as phase 1 habitat surveying, habitat condition assessments, national vegetation classification and bird territory mapping. Laboratory sessions will include use of microscopes in taxonomy and analysis of environmental parameters, such as water oxygen levels and soil nutrient status, to enable better understanding of species-environment interactions. There will be numerous opportunities to work on projects with linked organisations including wildlife trusts, zoos and wildlife parks, charities and public authorities, with the expectation that assignments, and especially dissertation work, will have direct impact on the understanding and management of species and their environments. There is the option to take a residential field trip; this currently takes place on a wildlife reserve in South Africa.
