Welcome to the third and final episode in our special three-part series of podcasts: “MASTERS OF SCIENCE (and Research)”. Here, Naturally Speaking’s James Burgon (@JamesBurgon) and Karen Hotopp (@KarenHotopp) are taking on the Institute’s three Masters courses one by one:
- MSc. in Quantitative Methods in Biodiversity, Conservation and Epidemiology
- MSc. Animal Welfare Science, Ethics & Law
- MRes. Ecology & Environmental Biology
What are they? What do students learn? And what research do students conduct?
In our concluding episode we look at the most divergent of the three Masters programmes offered by the Institute, the MRes. Ecology & Environmental Biology. First we talk to Dr Dominic McCafferty, who coordinates the course with Dr Heather Ferguson, to find out why two projects may be better than one. Then we chat to some of our previous years’ students and find out about all the exciting things they researched. Is it time for you to follow their lead and get out of the classroom? Get ready for a journey that will take you from the basement of the Institute to the jungles of South America!
