Ecology and Conservation at Edge Hill University - UCAS

Course summary

Our planet’s ecosystems are facing huge pressure from human actions. Join our ecology and conservation degree to visit threatened habitats and encounter rare species. Graduate with an understanding of the key issues ecosystems face – and how to protect them. Climate change, an increasing human population, habitat loss, pollution and invasive species are fundamentally changing the planet’s ecosystems. Mitigating the impacts of these is the crucial challenge facing societies across the globe. On our BSc (Hons) Ecology and Conservation degree you’ll study how these changes are impacting biodiversity. You’ll research the ecology of different habitats and species, and consider the most recent advances in conservation. In the lab you’ll develop skills in identification and soil analysis. And you’ll take part in fieldwork developing surveying and sampling skills. By the end of the course, you’ll be ready to start a career in protecting wildlife and the environment – and show others what they can do to protect life on Earth.
