Besides foundational knowledge in social and natural sciences, our graduates will accumulate domain knowledge and skills across a spectrum of conservation and sustainability themes and sectors ranging from forests and farms; biodiversity, ecosystems services and human well-being; environmental ethics and social justice; policy, governance and impact assessment; ecological restoration and landscaping; climate change; and field and machine learning technologies. A wide range of competencies in these fields makes our graduates competitive and sought-after candidates for roles in conservation and sustainability initiatives across the country. These include

  • State and non-state institutions implementing or investing in rural and urban conservation programs and schemes that can valuably employ graduates of the Conservation Practice Masters.
  • Corporate social responsibility departments and sustainability offices will value the knowledge and skills that graduates of this program will be equipped with. 
  • Entrepreneurship in conservation and sustainability would inspire, benefit, and boost conservation and sustainability activities at various scales. Graduates of our program will be well-equipped for such initiatives.
  • Graduates of our program can contribute to global, national and local endeavours by NGOs and think tanks to further the cause of conservation and sustainability.
  • Environmental management or consulting organisations will appreciate the range of knowledge and skills that graduates of the Conservation Practices program have.
  • The practical skills offered by the program advance the competencies and lend an “applied” perspective to graduates who wish to continue in research-oriented jobs.

ATREE and TDU are formalising partnerships with corporate, NGO, government and academic networks; campus placements will be initiated through them.
