New Master Program
by Selina Treffner
Management of Conservation Areas
Recently, the Carinthia University of Applied Sciences (CUAS) launched a new master program on the Management of Conservation Areas. The international master will start in October 2019. It is considered the Austrian contribution to the "Promise of Sydney". In the beautiful scenery of Carinthias oldest nature park, Naturpark Dobratsch Kärnten, the program was firstly presented in an informal atmosphere. The comprehensive academic education is unique in Europe. It allows for career growth in protected areas (nature parks, national parks, biosphere reserves, world heritage sites or European protected areas), in research and education as well as in NGOs or international organizations. The key elements of the skills-oriented education are international cooperation as well as transcultural learning and working.
