This is facilitated through an integrated assessment of the complex relationships between land management practices (particularly agricultural practices), environmental conditions (climatic, geological etc), national and international policy, and the sustainable management of natural and cultural resources within the rural landscape.
- The emphasis placed on understanding the implications (positive and negative) of agricultural management on natural and cultural resources, makes this a unique programme in the area of rural conservation and management.
- Students have the opportunity to undertake field trips, will acquire practical field skills such as plant identification, and have an opportunity to implement these skills within projects.
- Students will receive contributions from a range of experts relevant to rural conservation management.
Graduates from the Rural Environmental Conservation and Management programme from the University College Dublin respond to many of the major global challenges such as population growth, global warming, biodiversity, food security and food and health issues. Consequently, the opportunities for graduates globally in this discipline are excellent.
There are a range of potential employers for graduates from this programme including government departments, local authorities, county councils, Environmental Protection Agencies and a range of national and international NGOs. In addition, suitable candidates may progress to PhD study.
