BSc (Hons) Zoology
Zoology is the science of animals. In this course, you will develop an understanding of all aspects of animal biology in terrestrial, marine and freshwater environments. You will gain in-depth knowledge of animal ecology and evolution, and develop the key lab skills in animal behaviour, molecular biology, physiology, and cellular biology that are sought after by employers and are necessary for postgraduate education.
You will gain key practical experience in diverse laboratory and field practicals across your studies and in two compulsory residential field courses in years one (Slapton, UK) and two (Kenya), giving you first-hand experience of a range of ecosystems both at home and in other parts of the world. You will also have the option of partaking in an optional work placement year, giving you the opportunity to apply your knowledge in a real world context, with global possibilities.
