Course summary

Zoology aims to understand all forms of animal life across all environments, both terrestrial and marine. This includes:* animals that may be domesticated or farmed such as livestock, lab animals or pets* organisms that are serious pests or disease-causing agents* species that are an integral part of our natural environment and a key species in our ecological communitiesNo matter how these animals fit into their environment, there is an underlying need to understand their behaviour, population dynamics, physiology, and the way they interact with other species and their environments. As a consequence, zoology pulls on all the disciplines covered across the school of biological sciences, from cell and molecular biology, developmental biology, parasitology, animal behaviour, population biology and ecology - all underpinned by evolutionary thinking.**Areas of study**On this programme, you will study:* animal biology and evolution* animal diversity* behavioural ecology You will also spend time in the field carrying out your own research.**Flexibility**Biological Sciences explores the study of living organisms, covering everything from the interactions of animals in their environment to how genes are expressed.We offer 12 different Biological Sciences subject areas, including zoology. Regardless of your initial application choice, you will have the opportunity to explore aspects of each of our programmes in the early years and choose to specialise in whichever one interests you.
