SRUC Advent Calendar: 6th December
Countryside Management is all about protecting and maintaining the natural environment and its heritage to enable access to all to enjoy it, whilst ensuring that it continues to thrive despite human presence. Studying the subject will enable you to develop a broad understanding of:
- Habitat and species management
- Recreational provision and management
- Geology and geomorphology
- Land use and ecology.
It is an important skill for the ongoing impact of human settlement, population growth and urban development.
Countryside Management students have gone on to work with many organisations such as the John Muir Trust. Provided you have a passion for the outdoors, are willing to work in all weathers and all environments, this is a fantastic subject to study.
