MAB master degree
The MAB France Committee and the Paul Sabatier University of Toulouse are proposing a MAB course in the master's degree in biodiversity management at this university.
This is a French-speaking master's degree aimed at providing professional training for coordinators / managers of Biosphere Reserves or protected areas, local authority officials, or any other person interested in biodiversity management.
The MAB Master's degree
is aimed in particular at people wishing to complete a 5th year of university education, or in continuing education. It can accommodate up to 18 students per year.
The courses are held from September 15 to January 31 at the Paul Sabatier University in Toulouse, followed by a 6-month professional assignment in a professional institution of the student's choice.
The Master's degree is based on the MAB programme to cover the conceptual, historical, institutional and contractual aspects specific to protected areas associated with human activities.
It will provide essential diagnostic tools (mapping, inventories, territorial diagnosis) and will train people to participate and involve them in management. Students will also be involved in a concrete project to create, revise or manage a French Biosphere Reserve. Foreign students will be asked to complete this work by reflecting on an adaptation of the approach used in a Biosphere Reserve in their country.
The MAB Master's degree is a UNESCO Chair.
The former students of the master's degree are grouped in the Co'MAB association.
