Conservation Biology

The course covers the biological, economic, legal, political and social aspects of biodiversity conservation and how these operate across spatial scales (from local to global levels). The pathway is designed for wildlife officers and administrators with practical experience in international conservation work, which they want to reinforce with formal scientific training, in addition to students with academic qualifications in other subjects who wish to retrain for a new career in conservation. This pathway consists of six months of coursework and five months of research. The optional modules allow you the flexibility to devise a pathway that suits your specific interests, with an appropriate balance between natural and social sciences. In exceptional circumstances, DICE admits applicants without a first degree if their professional career and experience shows academic achievement of a high enough standard.

Entry requirements

A 2nd class Honours degree or better in a relevant subject, or a good Honours degree in another subject together with relevant practical experience.

Assessment methods

Assessment is carried out primarily through continuous assessment of coursework with written examinations in some topics; the research dissertation is written up in the format of a paper for publication.
