The purpose of the Master of Public Management and Governance is to equip students with specialized knowledge and insights to develop in-depth knowledge in a complex area of study through independent research, to demonstrate specialized leadership, self-reflexivity, and adaptability, to develop analytical and management competencies at the master’s level to perform advanced and professional tasks in the public sector, to gain abstract knowledge into either policy evaluation as a higher-order management function or sustainability management, to synthesize information autonomously in these specialized fields in order to become leaders who can handle contradictions and evaluate highly complex problems independently, to write high-level texts and to apply research methods and techniques to solve problems which need scientific solutions. -

In Conservation Ecology, we specialise in the conservation of plants, animals and fungi, which includes the conservation of the organisms themselves, their interactions with other species and the natural process across landscapes that allows them to persist. Major research thrusts are the functioning and ecology of plant and animal populations, and the complex living communities in the management of natural resources and landscapes. This includes the conservation, restoration and sustainable use of forest trees, natural grazing lands, game species, the prevention and control of invasive species, the management of species, ecosystems and environmental processes in both formal and private protected areas, especially those in human-fragmented landscapes, and the implementation of social learning institutions for the adaptive management of production landscapes. Research in this department also focuses on integrating conservation into agriculture. This involves researching ecosystem services processes such as pollination, nutrient cycling, water filtration and the promotion of natural enemies of pests to create sustainable farming systems that will be able to deliver long-term food and water security. -
