Overview

Environmental Management course with a specialisation in Conservation since 2013. With this Masters degree, you’ll gain the scientific knowledge and learn the approaches for conservation science and practice.

You’ll get the opportunity to specialise in particular areas with the selection of relevant modules and in your research project. Areas of potential specialisation include:

ecosystem services
environmental economics
conservation conflicts
habitat and biodiversity management
application of geographic information systems (GIS) and remote sensing

You’ll get plenty of practice in environmental conservation and management field skills, as there’s a compulsory residential field trip which takes place in the Cairngorm National Park. They also offer a two week field course on tropical ecology and conservation in Gabon.

Graduates from the course have been quick to gain employment in the conservation and environmental sectors, with organisations including:

The University of Stirling is a hub for environmental bodies in Scotland. Several environmental consultancies and NGOs have offices in or around the University, including the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB), British Trust for Ornithology and The Bumblebee Conservation Trust. We work closely with these organisations in conducting research which provides the evidence upon which their conservation strategies are based.

They also have very good links with international organisations such as Wildlife Conservation Society, with governmental organisations such as Gabon National Park Agency and Scottish Natural Heritage. Some staff from these organisations are their Honorary professors.
