This is a link to the program’s curriculum. Please see the list of courses offered and communicate with the Gorongosa staff – email@example.com – to know where your course fits in the current academic sequence. We strive to create a cohesive curriculum in which courses build-on and reinforce each other in spite of the distance between our faculty members.
For those of you who are acting as thesis advisors, please understand that our students benefit immensely from your guidance. Mentorship can be a challenge when professors live far from their students, so we recommend you have monthly Skype conversations with your student and their Gorongosa academic advisor in order to ensure students are on-track to produce high quality work. Because of the nature of long-distance advising, we ask our student advisors and students to sign a contract to ensure effective communication.
We aim to become an internationally recognized M.Sc. program dedicated to training competent and capable biologists and conservation leaders in Mozambique. Our students acquire comprehensive knowledge of conservation science, which allows them to become successful researchers and managers of the country’s biological resources. Learn More.
