Master's Program in Biodiversity (MPB) from National Taiwan University is cross-disciplinary in nature and aims to cultivate talent with both theoretical knowledge and practical skills in biodiversity conservation and management as well as awareness of international biodiversity governance.


The Biodiversity (MPB) program from National Taiwan University emphasizes biodiversity theories as a foundation before moving onto more in-depth discussions on the scientific knowledge of biodiversity, sustainable resource utilization and planning, and benefit estimation and sharing.

Therefore, the curriculum covers the methodology and technology required for conducting research. 

It revolves around two main themes:

  • Biodiversity Science
  • Biodiversity Conservation and Sustainability
Furthermore, with practical training based on local biodiversity issues and mini courses taught by international scholars, students can not only develop the problem-solving skills necessary for biodiversity management in Taiwan but also widen their horizons by interacting with researchers from around the world, acquiring a multi-scale aptitude for managing both regional and international biodiversity affairs.In brief, the program integrates the perspectives of humanities, social sciences, and environmental sustainability into the study of biodiversity conservation to produce graduates who meet the current qualifications for global biodiversity conservation and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), who have a robust understanding of biodiversity theories, the ability to plan for biodiversity sustainability and manage biodiversity benefit estimation and sharing, and practical skills for interdisciplinary integration.
