The Master of Conservation Science program will show you how to use science to support conservation strategies and policies. It integrates conservation, ecology and biodiversity - with a focus on the problems of restoring and maintaining viable populations of animal and plant species, and natural and managed ecosystems - so you can better confront complex conservation problems.
This program is taught by world-class experts, in an intensive mode that allows you to complete the equivalent of two academic years in just 18 months.
You'll deepen your understanding of all aspects of biodiversity and conservation, environmental philosophy, national and international conservation policy, and systematic conservation decision-making processes. And, in addition to advanced-level coursework, you'll complete more than a month of field work at unique sites, including subtropical rainforests, national parks, outback Australia, UQ's Heron Island and Moreton Bay research stations, and the Solomon Islands.
Choose between the research and coursework pathways. Once you complete 12 courses, you can apply for admission to complete a major four-month research project, or opt to complete four additional courses to finish your degree.
