Society is increasingly sensitive to anthropogenic effects on the natural environment and the public perception is that we do not always weigh the benefits of activities against the associated environmental cost. This master degree in Environmental Conservation and Management is offered at The University of Wales Trinity Saint David. 


The MSc Environmental Conservation and Management programme from The University of Wales Trinity Saint David is designed to develop and prepare students for a career in the environmental sector. The disciplines here help deal with many challenges facing our planet, country and locality which are central to the future of society.

The University led the way by becoming the first university to offer an Environmental Conservation degree in 1998. There continues to be a societal and political demand for the sustainable management of our environment and natural resources.

This MSc programme will develop your abilities to address the competing needs of society, the economy and the environment in a practical and holistic way, supported by geographical and academic knowledge.
