About Conservation Biology at Faculty of Science and Engineering, Manchester Metropolitan University

The world's habitats are undergoing rapid transformation. The impacts of climate change are causing species extinction at an unprecedented rate. Conservation biology as a discipline looks at the science behind these changes - including the identification of ecosystems at risk, ways of conserving biodiversity, and the role of genetics and demography.

With our masters, you'll tackle all that and more, gaining the knowledge and skills for a career at the forefront of conservation. You'll explore the scientific background to species conservation and the factors driving extinction. You'll also look at the sustainable use of resources and learn valuable statistical techniques for analysing ecological data. With a range of option units, you'll be able to specialise in areas like species recovery and behavioural biology.

But this course is as much about practice as it is about theory. While the core units include a field course to Poland, Ecuador or East Africa, your masters project also has a practical focus, demanding in-depth research before you present your findings.

Throughout it all, you'll be supported by experienced academics, who'll bring their real-world expertise direct to the classroom as you prepare to make your own way in the world of conservation. And with the international focus of this degree, it's a career journey that could take you literally anywhere.
