You will learn the fundamentals of ecological theory and project management including scope definition, work planning, resource and risk management, along with human relations skills. As a graduate of this program, you’ll have an international perspective on sustainable development and environmental monitoring throughout study cases, fieldtrips, data collection and laboratory work. An internship at the end of your second year will allow you to use the skills needed to conduct independent field research projects in natural or urban environments (direct observation and data collection, research design, field methodology…). The internship can be conducted in Europe or abroad. 

 You’ll be a student at the biology department at UCO at the Faculty of science in the Loire River Valley in France where they conduct thesis-level research related to conservation and ecological management in a real-world setting.
