A Master of Science is an advanced degree that can be earned in about two years of schooling following a bachelor program. For many students, obtaining an MSc is the culmination of years of study and work, and it may help lead to incredible educational and professional opportunities.

What is an MSc in Biodiversity? This educational program helps students understand how the diverse ecosystems that exist in our world influence both human and wildlife populations. Students also learn how to manage and protect these ecosystems. Possible courses may include evolution and biodiversity, ecosystem health and sustainability, conservation ethics, environmental law, and climate change policy. Some MSc programs also require students to complete a dissertation or final research project to complete their degree requirements.

Earning an MSc can be advantageous for students as they learn how to use advanced scientific techniques to better understand the world. Students also discover new ways of looking at and solving problems, which can help make students indispensable in their future careers.  

The cost to earn an MSc can vary for each student, as factors such as the location of the school and the length of the program can affect the final cost. Students interested in earning this degree are advised to research their potential school to understand the financial obligation of their education.

Students who graduate with a Master of Science in Biodiversity are often well-suited for careers in education, conservation, ecotourism, science, research, and consultation. Possible job titles include conservation warden, field survey worker, ecologist, hydrologist, environmental educator, zookeeper, and conservation officer. Some graduates may choose to continue their education and earn a PhD to become highly qualified experts in their field.

If you are interested in protecting people, the environment, and wildlife as development continues around the world, then this degree may be a good fit for you.

This Master's provides deep knowledge about theory in conservation biology, including population dynamics in small populations and heterogeneous landscapes as well as conservation genetics. It provides insight into how habitat loss, habitat conversion and climate change affect biodiversity and how this feeds back on ecosystem services (e.g. pollination or biological control). There is an emphasis on developing a deep understanding of and critically evaluating conservation theory and tools in conservation, and on developing skills that can be of use both in practical conservation work and in research. Conservation biology professionals are needed and employed by governmental agencies, municipalities, non-governmental organisations and private consultancies. The programme also provides a solid ground for PhD studies. -

The understanding of plant diversity and resources has never been more important. As we face the unprecedented challenges of climate change and environmental degradation, effective environmental surveillance and conservation depend upon detailed knowledge of plants and their habitats. This programme is run jointly by the University and the world-renowned Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh (RBGE). The RBGE is home to one of the world’s best living collections of plants (15,000 species across four sites, amounting to five per cent of known world species), a herbarium of three million preserved specimens and one of the UK’s most comprehensive botanical libraries. -
