Podcast | Dr Stephen Green | Course Leader MSc Conservation Project Management

Have you considered going back to university and doing a Master’s Degree in order to become more employable within the sector? 

Perhaps you’ve looked at many programmes and wondered if they are tooling you up with the right skills employers value. 

In today’s podcast, we’re speaking with Dr Stephen Green who’s the course leader for an exciting new Master’s programme, designed and delivered in partnership with Conservation Careers, to train you in the core skills used by professionals day-to-day. 

We discuss who the new MSc Conservation Project Management at Newquay University Center is for. We also chat about the emphasis on core conservation skills – such as project management, communications and fundraising – and finally explore the programme’s flexibility; allowing students to pursue various conservation paths and receive career development support. 

 Stephen then discusses his career journey with us, explaining what it’s like to be a lecturer in zoology and course leader within a University, and how he got there. 

Finally he shares his career advice for people like you who might be seeking to follow in his footsteps.  

It’s a Master’s musing, snake studying and employment enhancing podchat.
