MASTERS OF CONSERVATION SCIENCE AT IMPERIAL COLLEGE LONDON

Conservation Science is a rapidly growing area of interdisciplinary research, which informs policy decisions regarding the management of the biodiversity and ecosystem services upon which humans depend. The MSc in conservation science has been designed in order to give students a broad yet rigorous knowledge base that a career in this sector requires. The course is genuinely interdisciplinary and teaches methodologies and concepts derived from both the natural and social sciences.

This course aims to give graduates the skills required for success in the highly competitive and very broad field of international conservation. About a third of recent graduates have gone on to PhDs, another third to working as programme or project managers for international and national conservation NGOs in the UK or overseas, and another third into consultancies, policy think tanks or government. The vast majority are working in conservation within 12 months of graduating.
