Masters’ Degree Program in Wildlife Biology and Conservation

We partner with National Centre for Biological Sciences (NCBS) and the Wildlife Conservation Society in running a full-fledged two year Masters’ Degree Program in Wildlife Biology and Conservation. The program was the brain child of Dr. K. Ullas Karanth who donated his $200,000 WWF Getty Award to jump start the program in India. Initiated in 2004, this program has matriculated 103 students. Our students have published hundreds of peer-reviewed scientific papers. Sixteen have already completed their Ph.Ds while twenty are pursuing their doctorates across the world. Sixty seven are actively engaged in independent projects, education and outreach.
