We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Ecology consider the interaction of organisms - such as invertebrates, reptiles, amphibians, mammals, plants and microbes - within their environment. They also include analysis of these organisms' evolutionary history.
Postgraduate specialisms and related topics in Ecology include Environmental Biology, Behavioural Ecology and Conservation Ecology. Entry requirements normally include a degree in a relevant subject such as Biology or Environmental Science.
Postgraduate study in Ecological Science can be highly diverse. Alongside applied training in microbiology through practical activities like lab testing, bioimaging, and 3D modelling, you will also receive vocational training through fieldtrips or placements, analysing ecosystems using GIS (Geographic Information Systems) and other forms of data collection for your research.
With transferrable skills such as these, you would be suitable for a number of career options including wildlife conservation and zoo keeping, and even forestry and rural estates management. You could also branch into research or consultancy positions for universities, government agencies, and charitable organisations.
If you would prefer a career in academia, your Masters experience would make you an excellent candidate for further research at PhD level.
