There are many challenges facing the natural world from climate change and biodiversity loss to the impact of new technologies and invasive species. A career in Conservation can help tackle these issues and this programme develops the professional, technical and academic skills required to progress to Conservation management roles or further academic study.
The College’s location on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park and between two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty provides an ideal location for field visits, case studies and guest speakers from the many Conservation organisations in the area. Class-based sessions will focus on the links between academic research and practitioner work on the ground and the Dissertation will allow you to focus in-depth on your own area of interest.
There are no examinations at this level and assessments will take the form of essays, presentations, professional audits, portfolios and research reports. You will receive feedback on your formal assessments within four working weeks of the submission date. You must receive a pass mark of 40 or above in all modules to achieve the BSc (Hons) Degree. Your overall grade for the course and your BSc (Hons) Degree classification are based on the marks obtained for all modules.
