Many wonder: “Just what is an MSc in Conservation?” This degree can help students learn all about protecting and preserving the natural environment. Courses typically cover topics including sustainability, climate science, wildlife protection, environmental policy, legal rules and regulations, geoscience, or environmental engineering. Students may learn about general principles of conservation or about specific issues, such as global warming, watershed protection, or biodiversity.

Those who earn a conservation degree may discover a number of benefits, including an enhanced understanding of how to protect the local environments. They might also be able to boost their critical thinking skills and learn to develop solutions to widespread problems. This type of degree is also a good way to enhance job prospects.

The invaluable and varied built heritage of Peru, which is more than 14,000 years old, developed in different geographical contexts, with diverse materials, techniques, and construction systems, is in latent danger of being lost, both due to the fact that our country is highly seismic and with a long history of natural disasters, such as because in the last 50 years, it has been affected by economic, social and political conditions, which has obvious repercussions on its conservation. Historic areas and centers nationwide, containers of urban environments, and monuments are potential work areas. It is necessary and possible to manage projects to enable private and public investments, aimed at recovering the quality of life of its population and the conservation of its built heritage. -

This programme encompasses a broad range of topics and land uses. Conservation management, rural land use planning, land-use history, and more. The factors affecting the wider environment are constantly increasing and range from agriculture and forestry to recreation, urban development, and population growth. These in turn have knock-on effects such as climate change, water, and food shortages, habitat and species loss, and the impact of non-native species. One of the areas where these factors come together is in the field of wildlife and conservation management where the public use of the countryside interacts with professional land managers and can result in conflict. This programme encompasses a broad range of topics and land uses ranging from conservation management to rural land use planning and interpretation to land-use history. Applications are accepted from those either with or without specifically related previous qualifications - previous students have included graduates of History, Education, Business Management and Engineering, as well as Biological and Natural Sciences. Non-graduate entrants have included students with significant experience in aspects such as countryside rangering, town & country planning, and ecology. -
