Course info

Summary

In this degree programme, you'll get your hands dirty straight away, learning about ecosystems, conservation issues, sustainable management of land, animals, and plant life, as well as the management strategies that promote the conservation of biodiversity and address biosecurity.

As a biodiversity management student, you’ll explore how ecosystems function and support biological diversity, and how managers of biodiversity are responding to increasing concern over the impact of human activities on the planet.

Highlights

  • Developed in response to increasing global concerns over the human impact on our natural environment
  • Emphasis on practical application: possible work experience in applied settings for organisations like the Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI), Department of Conservation (DOC), the Auckland Council or volunteer organisations
  • A chance to complete a research project in an area of your own interest in order to develop the skills you'll need for a career in your chosen field
  • One of our biggest strengths is plant identification, a skill well regarded by the conservation industry. We’ll help you develop your knowledge and confidence with plant identification
  • A teaching team of highly qualified and respected scientists and industry consultants including botanists and an ornithologist

Double major

Study a double major and you'll get the best of both worlds, with a selection of animal- and environment-related courses. Studying for a double major is highly recommended.
