Online Postgraduate Opportunity in 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.

The 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. With ever-increasing environmental threats, it is vital that people fully appreciate the complex relationships between human populations, wildlife and the ecosystems in which they live. There is more need than ever before for those in the field of conservation to employ a holistic approach to ecosystem management in a way that accommodates the needs of all species living within them. The ultimate goal must be to conserve the long-term capacity of ecosystems to support the ongoing requirements of both people and wildlife in the developing and developed world.

If you want to be part of a global, interdisciplinary network working to achieve these goals, this programme may be for you.

The programme draws together expertise from within the University of Edinburgh's Global Health Academy and partner global associates, to deliver first class teaching and research in the field of Biodiversity, Wildlife and Ecosystem Health.
