MSc (Biodiversity) Conservation and Ecosystem Management

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.

  1. (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
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
