Course Summary

The International Masters in Applied Ecology brings together nine leading Universities from across the world to train specialists who can lead ecological projects in a wide range of environments. You’ll focus on a major field of Ecology – such as Biodiversity, Ecotoxicology or Evolutionary Ecology – while attending courses and field trips in locations as diverse as Ecuador, New Zealand and the Galapagos Islands. The course consists of a number of optional modules that you can use to tailor your learning, before completing a Masters-level dissertation on your chosen subject.

This unique course gives you the chance to visit different countries and learn about practical Ecology with experts from some of the best Ecology departments in the world. The School of Environmental Sciences at UEA was ranked 1st in the UK for the impact of our research, and we’ve got fantastic links with major industry, NGO and governmental organisations. The course aims to form specialists able to develop and lead ecological projects throughout the world by providing them with a wide range of competences and skills, completed by a professional specialisation in one of several leading fields of Ecology (Biodiversity conservation, Ecotoxicology, Functional ecosystem dynamics, Systems theory and ecosystem services, Evolutionary ecology, Biodiversity assessment, analyses and conservation).

Modules

The global biodiversity crisis and mass species loss has major implications for society - how can we solve these problems in a world challenged by climate change, population growth and the need for socio-economic development. This is an inter-disciplinary module focusing on the critical evaluation of scientific evidence as a basis for biodiversity conservation policy, strategy and instruments. The module is assessed by coursework designed to develop transferable skills of evidence-based scientific appraisal, including: identification of relevant evidence needs, evaluation of the quality of evidence, synthesis of policy and research implications.
