As the director of a Post-baccalaureate certificate program within E3B, I advise around 30 students on their directed studies in ecology, evolution and environmental biology. Students come to the program from very diverse academic and social backgrounds, but generally with the common goal to further their education in conservation biology and ecology. We have an amazingly talented group of students, with some of their stories featured here (coming soon!).
Students in the program have the option, depending on their prior learning, of pursuing a comprehensive certificate path, comprising foundation studies in chemistry, biology, climate and statistics, along with several electives, or a concentrated course of study comprising primary higher electives. Electives can come from our diverse range of courses in, for example, conservation biology, marine ecology, primate anatomy and behavior, forest ecology, population genetics and landscape analysis.
