A Master in Ecology is a degree that students can earn after graduating from their undergraduate program. A lower level degree in a related field is usually required as a prerequisite. This advanced education program is designed for students that are focusing on their career after graduation.

So what is an MA in Ecology? Ecology is the study of the environment, the organisms that occupy the environment, and the relationship between the two, as well as humans' relationship to the ecosystem. The primary focus is commonly placed on identifying and resolving issues that are a threat to nature and natural resources. Entry into this field prepares students to help the world be more sustainable and environmentally friendly.

Master's in ecology programs are especially beneficial when they include field work. That real-world experience allows graduates to move directly into the field and start working immediately. Additionally, ecology professionals work in a very fulfilling career where they are able to make a strong positive influence on the world. 

The cost of earning your MA in Ecology varies greatly with many different factors. These include university, program, length of study, full-time or part-time status, country of study, and others. It is important to research your options before enrolling so you can find a program that meets all of your requirements.

The most common careers for graduates are environmental and geographic scientists, who will study and help improve the environment. It is also possible to work with national parks, museums, or research facilities. Because the environment is important across the globe, there is a demand for graduates regardless of where you are studying. Independent, government, and academic institutions need to employ specialists in this area, so there are many options for work.
