Course Description

Biodiversity and Conservation (M.Sc.)



This programme has been designed to provide students with a sound theoretical and practical grounding in the science of biological diversity and its conservation. The programme is taught in modules, and these are grouped into theoretical components, practical research skills, and modules dealing with individual desk-based and experimental research projects. The course is taught through a variety of methods – lectures, practical classes, field-based learning, guided reading and discussion groups and web-based methods. A variety of assessment procedures are used – essay writing, oral presentations, web-based tests, examinations and dissertations. The

approach is to develop, progressively, a high degree of independent thinking and academic excellence in students completing the course.

Following successful completion of the taught part of the course, students embark on a closely supervised research project of approximately three months duration, intended to expand the skills and knowledge base acquired in earlier modules.
