Online Postgraduate Opportunity - Biodiversity, Wildlife and Ecosystem Health

Online Postgraduate Opportunity in Biodiversity, Wildlife and Ecosystem Health

From the University of Edinburgh in collaboration with The Royal Zoological Society of Scotland

This new online MSc programme draws together expertise from the University of Edinburgh's Global Health Academy and Royal (Dick) Vet School, the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland (RZSS), with the support of the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) and partner global associates, to deliver first class teaching and research in the field of Biodiversity, Wildlife and Ecosystem Health.

The future health and security of both wildlife and human populations relies critically on the health of the ecosystems on which they depend.

It is important that people fully appreciate the complex relationships between human populations, wildlife and the ecosystems in which they live.

There is more emphasis than ever before on a holistic approach to conservation management, to assess and accommodate the needs of all aspects of ecosystems. This can help achieve the ultimate goal of sustainable ecosystem use, to conserve the long-term potential of habitats and species diversity in both the developing and developed world.

This new MSc in Biodiversity, Wildlife and Ecosystem Health aims to meet the demand for interdisciplinary training required by those whose role it is to understand and manage the natural environment. It will introduce you to the complex inter-dependent nature of ecosystems and the species they sustain, and encourage you to assess the impact of current and future threats to their survival.
