Our MSc Primate Conservation – Apes in the Anthropocene course is ideal for students with a particular interest in great apes and gibbons. It is a pioneering programme providing scientific and professional training and accreditation to conservation scientists.
The course covers the challenges and research opportunities around Apes in the Anthropocene. This includes a tailored module allowing you to focus on your chosen topic within conservation, ecology and cognition.
Coursework is innovative and varied. It will provide you with direct training to work in conservation or ecology as a practitioner, advocate or academic.
You’ll work with international scholars in primatology, biological anthropology and primate conservation. And gain the experience to research great apes and gibbons, and where relevant, to enact positive change.
