The Masters of Wildlife Health and Population Management is an innovative program that provides holistic training in wildlife population management. Students will be taught by experts from academia, industry, and government in one of the most beautiful and ecologically diverse settings in the world, yet will only be a short distance from the cosmopolitan and vibrant city of Sydney. Graduates will have the skills to address the increasingly complex challenges that face wildlife around the world, allowing them to be employed in a wide range of wildlife-related fields or enter a PhD program.

The Masters is designed to offer the student maximum flexibility so that they can take full advantage of the opportunities available in the program. It is composed of a combination of 6 core units of study that are offered in full time, 7 day residential courses with additional online material, 4 elective units of study and a 12 credit research capstone experience. The units and capstone experience can be taken as a 1.5 year full-time program or, for domestic students, part time over a number of years.

The Wildlife Masters is designed to appeal to students with a background in biology, ecology, conservation or veterinary medicine.
