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 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 appreciate the range of knowledge and skills that graduates of the Conservation Practice 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 in the process of formalising partnerships with corporate, NGO, government and academic networks; campus placements will be initiated through them.
