Ecological and Environmental Sciences with Management

You can combine your study of ecological and environmental sciences with the study of management. You will study a wide variety of courses, starting with those focused on the origins of life, the basics of ecological theory, and global environmental processes. You will examine topics such as biodiversity, conservation management and land-use, while also gaining a broad understanding of physical, chemical and biological sciences. Later in the programme you will explore methods used in ecological and environmental analysis and topics such as, water resource management, land use, environmental pollution and environmental modelling. You will be taught by staff involved in high-level research in these subject areas. You will have the opportunity to undertake research projects, including a long independent research project in your final year, and will complete field and laboratory assignments, including at least three week-long field trips in Scotland. The programme will provide you with the skills and knowledge to tackle environmental issues, design robust strategies for sample collection, make ecological and environmental measurements, evaluate the significance of results and manage conservation and environmental protection projects. In addition to the above, you will be able to study management courses from the University of Edinburgh Business School and the School of Economics as well as from Schools across the College of Science & Engineering. This programme is particularly relevant to those seeking careers in policy-making, consultancy or in the management of natural resources.
