Course summary

From ragworms and rhinos to locusts and lemurs, the animal world is an ever-changing and always-fascinating place to explore. On our BSc (Hons) Animal Behaviour and Conservation degree you can delve in and discover it all – developing an understanding of the vast range and huge importance of animal behaviour.With us, you’ll consider the drivers of different types of animal behaviour, looking at the interaction of genetics, evolutionary history and present-day environments. You’ll also investigate how and why behaviour changes over an animal’s lifetime, from genetic and hormonal factors to the physiological and environmental mechanisms. You will be equipped with the tools needed in conservation and will study real-world examples of how species and their habitats can be conserved.Through a blend of laboratory and field work, we’ll show you how to record behavioural data and use professional-grade software for its analysis – vital tools in improving the welfare and management of domestic, wild and zoo populations.**Features and benefits**- Explore the topics and issues that shape the world around us, and choose from a range of exciting and rewarding specialisms within animal behaviour, conservation and biology.- You can take the four-year route, spending a year studying overseas in Europe, North America or Australia, or boosting your career prospects with a 12-month placement. This will be subject to national and international travel restrictions.- Develop practical skills in the laboratory and in the field, both in the UK and overseas – that could include fieldwork in Portugal, Tanzania, Kenya or South America, subject to national and international travel restrictions. - Learn in high-spec laboratories, including a specialist microbiology and cell/molecular biology lab, a DNA-sequencing lab, specialist animal behaviour facilities with Ethovision and Observer software, invertebrate behaviour, freshwater and terrestrial ecology labs, and controlled environment plant growth chambers.- Manchester is on the doorstep of the Peak District National Park and within two hours’ drive of three other National Parks, making it an ideal location to study biology.
