We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Biodiversity equip postgraduates with a working knowledge of the developmental processes of different plant, insect, and animal species, and their interrelationships within different environments.
Popular specialisms and related subjects include Biodiversity Conservation, Biodiversity Management, Taxonomy and Ecology. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Biology, Conservation or Ecology.
Tackling Biodiversity in the wider world is no easy feat, with the destruction of natural habitats and landscapes occurring on a daily basis. By training in this area, you could learn the techniques which aim to increase biodiversity and find solutions to everyday issues such as climate change and extinction.
Training is provided in areas such as taxonomy of animals and plants, their response to diseases, and their evolutionary relationships. You will explore these via methods such as lab testing, 3D modelling, and data collection and fieldwork. Policy across different industries, including commercial businesses and public organisations is also considered.
Careers include roles within environmental policy and management, public health, ecotourism or even scientific journalism. If you would prefer a career in academia, you may wish to utilise your Masters experience as groundwork for further research at PhD level.
