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 they can take full advantage of the opportunities available in the program. Depending on the student’s background, they may either complete the Masters with 48 credit points, or if the student does not meet the HEO 8 level requirements will need to complete 72 credit points. All students will take the 6 core units of study and complete the capstone 12 credit point research unit of study. Core units of study are offered in intensive 7 day blocks. Students needing 72 credit points will fill these in with electives offered in the Faculty of Veterinary Science and the Faculty of Environmental Science.

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