About

Postgraduate Diploma in Science - Ecology at University of Otago is the study of animals and plants in relation to their environment.

An Postgraduate Diploma in Science - Ecology at University of Otago produces graduates with a background which will enable them to make rational judgements on ecological matters, either as professional ecologists or as educated members of the public.

Courses in Ecology are taught by staff from the Departments of  Botany, Geography and Zoology.

Many of the papers offered by the various departments have fieldwork components which will give students an insight into these habitats.
