M.I.N.C. Courses

The study semesters provide students with a basic understanding of Conservation Biology and offer insights into international conservation problems.

Compulsory courses at Georg-August-Universität (Conservation Biology and Assessment, Monitoring and Conservation Strategies) focus on the stucture of, and basic theories and research approaches in Conservation Biology, reasons for biodiversity loss, the role of population biology as well as on methods to describe biodiversity and wildlife populations and practical strategies for recovery.

At Lincoln, a combination of modules are compulsory among which there are Advanced Ecology and Environmental Sciences for Environmental Policy, Research Methods in Ecology, and Aspects of Sustainability.

Intership Semester

The internship semester aims to provide hands-on experienced through interaction with practitioners, and is therefore an important component of the programme. Students will acquire practical skills by assisting in field and project work at a scientific host institution or at an international nature conservation organization or NGO. The practical project will cover three months minimum.

In the past, students have e.g. been working at the following office or field based locations:

  • IUCN World Headquarters, Switzerland
  • KfW, Germany
  • Bundesamt für Naturschutz, Bonn, Germany
  • UNEP offices in Germany, UK and Kenya
  • Conservation International, Indonesia
  • Department of Conservation, New Zealand
  • Seychelles Islands Foundation, Seychelles
  • Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute, Panama
  • WWF: Ecuador, Costa Rica, Malaysia and USA
  • Wildlife Conservation Society, Fidji
