Course summary

The four-year MSci Zoology programme mirrors the BSc Zoology programme during the first three years, and includes an additional fourth year. During the fourth year you will undertake two projects, each focused on a specialised area aligned with one of our leading research groups. It is expected that one of these projects will be carried out in partnership with an external organisation. The remainder of your time will be spent on a two-week intensive field course in which your scientific field-research, debating and presentation skills will be further developed. The programme focuses on an understanding of the biology of animals, with an emphasis on whole animal biology, biodiversity, ecology and behaviour, along with the evolution of the whole spectrum of animal life histories. It is delivered by internationally-recognised, research active staff in the Centre for Ecology and Conservation on our Penryn Campus in Cornwall. The Centre hosts a large and thriving group of scientists who work at the cutting edge of research on whole-organism biology and run research projects around the world, in exciting places such as Uganda to Australia. The programme utilises expertise in the Centre to provide you with the skills, concepts and experience to understand all aspects of modern zoology. The programme encourages an interdisciplinary approach and you will be exposed to a wide range of theoretical and practical techniques used to study the biology of animals of all types.
