There are four Newcastle University Ecology/Conservation/Biodiversity MSc – plus Marine Consultancy. All of which are designed to put you in a good position in the job market, to improve contacts or to prepare you for a PhD.
- (Biodiversity) Conservation and Ecosystem Management – for which I am DPD :
- This is the most practical of the courses, developing ecological knowldege alongside field and research skills (Field ID, GIS, NVC survey)
- Statistics are taught in R but assuming less confidence than the other programs
- Links with local ecological and conservation employers are strong with talks and visits We encourage dissertations that respond to topical questions from these employers
- We welcome people from other disciplines but who wish to change career and students from overseas who wish to enjoy UK ecosystems
- Ecology and Biodiversity
- Ecology and biodiversity is strong on global wildlife conservation policy and practice. Data management and analysis are emphasised with modules on meta analysis and data visualisation.
- Wildlife Management
- Wildlife Management provides the links between theory and practice of wildlife management, developing practical skills in tracking, surveying and licensing and experimental skills to support evidence for policy.
- Ecological Consultancy
- This gives you all the skills you need to be an ecological consultant. GIS, Phase1 and Phase2 survey, EIA. The dissertation is a consultancy project with a client.
