In this Biology - Ecology and Conservation program at Uppsala University you can choose among theoretical courses relating to plants, animals and microorganisms and their interactions, and there are also vocational courses that are intended for future work with nature conservation within companies, authorities and other organisations. This means you can become a sought after practitioner with a stable theoretical base.
With the combinations of suitable courses and choice of thesis work you will get a good basis for a future professional life within nature conservation.
The place of work could be authorities at the local, regional or national level, as well as non-governmental organisations and private consultancies (a large part of conservation work is done by such agencies).International work, for example within conservation organisations, is also an option. Your achieved solid theoretical knowledge will make you able to solve applied problems in ecology and conservation. Our focus on presentation techniques (writing reports, giving oral presentations and ample opportunities for discussions with fellow students and peers) is important for your future career.
Our graduates work at, for example, the Swedish Transport Administration, Tierps Kommun and Lund University. Job titles include Ecologist, Environmental Protection Officer and PhD student.
