About this course

The importance of conservation and the environment is increasingly being recognised. This course provides an understanding of the countryside and the pressure that both wildlife and the environment are facing. The main emphasis for the course is to balance the often competing needs of the countryside with that of recreational visitors and importantly understand current issues associated with agriculture and conservation. Effective management of the environment is therefore essential. This course has been designed to reflect the needs of employers and will give you both the practical skills and knowledge required within the work place. Students will study a wide range of subjects through a combination of lectures, seminars, field visits and study tours.
