  1. Hi all! I'm very interested in the Ecological Restoration Master's offered by Simon Fraser University and BCIT (In British Columbia, Canada). I feel like it has the perfect balance of field work and diligent research to check all of my particular boxes, and everything I read up on this program makes excites me. I know I would love being in the field of ecological restoration or conservation, and this master's genuinely seems like my perfect fit. HOWEVER! It's relatively new (started in 2015), and is the only master's degree of it's kind in Canada according to the SFU and BCIT websites. This uniqueness is what makes me hesitate. When I look at education requirements for a job as a restoration biologist, the suggestions are the more common master's like conservation, ecology, environmental science, zoology... all of which I'd enjoy, I'm sure, but the Ecological Restoration Master's sounds so perfect. So, what I'm asking is this: is taking this Ecological Restoration Master's a risky choice? Would I be safer taking a more common degree? I'm worried that by taking it I'll be pigeon-holing myself. I've tried emailing around asking about graduate employment trends, but I haven't heard anything back yet; In BC all of the university campuses are closed due to pandemic, so I think that is definitely a factor in why I haven't heard anything. The application deadline is coming up fast so I'm very eager for answers so I can make my decision. And so, I've come to you, people of the internet who are probably at home anyway! If you've taken this program or know someone who did, I would absolutely love to hear about first-hand experiences! Thanks, everyone!
  2. Hi everyone. I applied and heard back from them the second week of January. The interview was from February 5th-8th. It is a very small program, of 10 individuals invited to interview there will only be 2 spots available for PhD students. They told me that top contenders would be extended offers within the first two weeks following the interview. As of now, I have not heard back.
  3. I'm anxiously awaiting my decision from Northwestern. I believe this is a pretty small program, and I haven't seen anyone talk about it yet this year! Has anyone heard anything?
  4. Hello All, I recently graduated from my undergraduate degree in Environmental Science in the US but after having worked in the field for a few months, I have found a new passion in Art History and conservation. I am looking to apply for a master's program, but it requires 4 credits in Art History classes, of which I have none. I am wondering if it is worth finding a post-bac program that would fulfill these 4 credits or if it would be better to take 4 individual classes at a college in order to fulfill them? I am not a US citizen so it would be almost impossible to fulfill these credits in a Community college in the US. Therefore, my options lie in the EU. As I am less familiar with schools around Europe, does anyone know of universities in Italy that allow for non-degree enrollment for getting credits from classes? Thank you! Federico
  5. Hi everyone, I have recently been looking into becoming an Art Conservator / Restorer however I can't seem to find very much information pertaining to my current situation. I am hoping someone here is able to help me. I have an undergraduate degree in a non-related field (psychology) and would like to know what I need to do in order to become an art conservator. The only post baccalaureate program that I can find is the one year program at SACI in Florence, Italy but I am wondering if there are any other options for me other than this one route. It seems very unlikely that I would be able to enter directly into a masters program but at the same time it seems to be overkill to have to obtain another undergraduate degree. Any direction would be very much appreciated. Thanks so much, Sincerely, Kadin Goldberg
  6. Hey Forum, I'm currently working on the Liber Ero Fellowship and was wondering if anyone else is working on this as well? Has anyone applied for this in the past? The best of all, does anyone have a successful application they would be willing to share? Hope to hear from someone soon! J
  7. Hey all, I am about to embark on a masters in Conservation Biology at Antioch University New England. I am interested in raptor conservation, R, GIS, and bigger ES issues like global change. I was wondering if anyone is in these fields and has any thoughts on the job market as it stands. I am very adaptable and have done a wide range of work, from science to communications to writing to the arts, so I can teach myself what I need to gain almost any skills. GIS, Python, and R are all particularly interesting. I know there's always teaching science, but I was wondering if anyone had experience with environmental science/biology/modeling stuff or had advice on fields, skills, or even organizations to focus on.
