While you’ll focus primarily in the areas of population and community ecology and conservation biology, the Ecology (Part Time) course at the University of East Anglia is flexible so that it enables you to strengthen your knowledge in other areas of ecology too. Prepare to explore the functioning of aquatic, marine and terrestrial ecosystems; the importance of community structure, succession and population dynamics; the processes of predation, competition and other plant/animal interactions; population and biodiversity responses to natural environmental disturbance and human-induced stress; the current research agenda in ecology, evolution and conservation; and the potential contribution of integrating sustainable development with biodiversity conservation.
Be inspired by the opportunity to experience first-hand a fascinating array of species, ecosystems and conservation issues, via field-course modules in Ireland, Swaziland and Peru where you'll be guided by research and conservation experts.
We’ve also specifically designed our Graduate Diploma to ensure you develop a wide range of transferable skills, which will apply to any career or further graduate study at MSc or PhD level. You'll gain skills in communication, information technology, data mining and analysis, fieldwork, teamwork, critical writing, reasoning and time management.
