On this course you will study 120 credits in each year, through a range of lectures, tutorials, seminars and fieldwork. Our courses are modular. Although some modules are, by necessity, compulsory, others are optional, allowing you to expand your studies into new areas or develop specialisms that are of particular interest to you. Year 1 Compulsory modules may include: Ecosystem Function and Services Environmental Management and Conservation Ecology and Evolution Introductory Research Skills Academic Tutorials Field Course: Making Snowdonia Year 2 Compulsory modules may include: Principles of Conservation Research Methods & GIS Field Course: Environmental Conflict Conservation Practice Plant Diversity and Conservation Final Year Students take compulsory modules in Wildlife Ecology and Conservation and Environmental Policy as well as selecting from a range of others. They also work with a supervisor to design and carry out a piece of original research. The management plan – where students develop a plan for an area of Snowdonia National Park – is a unique feature of the Bangor degree and gives valuable professional training. The optional field trip to Tenerife covers wider issues of practical conservation. Other optional modules include Environmental Evidence, Forest Ecosystems, Upland Management and Marine Conservation.
