Zoology is the study of animal life across all levels of organisation; from the evolution and adaptations of whole organisms to the activities of animal cells and the biochemical processes that maintain them. In recent years the development of new technologies has opened new avenues to study collective behaviour of animals in the wild as well as understanding the cellular and molecular foundations of animal biology. This course builds on the BSc Biological Sciences course and allows you focus increasingly on modules covering various aspects of animal biology and zoology. This includes evolution, animal behaviour and ecology. Our graduates work in diverse careers such as medicine, conservation, agriculture and more.
