The framework is fairly broad, ranging from geomorphology and biology to social sciences applied to nature conservation.
The focus is on rapid assessment and monitoring methods for estimating the conservation status of plant and animal species, ecosystems, as well as natural features, and the application of legal and management measures in and outside protected areas. Special emphasise is in communication skills and in management of the participation process with various stakeholders as a key issue for successfully achieving nature conservation goals.
The broader concept sets the scene for many possibilities for specialisation in a particular applicative work, which is organised on an individual level.
There are active connections with other similar study programmes in Europe.
