Course summary

The four-year MSci Evolutionary Biology programme mirrors the BSc Evolutionary Biology programme during the first three years, and includes an additional fourth year during which you will undertake two projects. Each will focus on a specialised area aligned with one of our leading research groups, and it is expected that one 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.Evolutionary Biology is a fast growing area of study, utilising ever-more sophisticated technology to unravel the history of life on earth. During the degree you will utilise our cutting-edge facilities to develop advanced knowledge in this rapidly developing field, which encompasses genetics, animal behaviour, and psychology, and examine evolution from many perspectives – from the smallest building blocks of life to entire ecosystems.This field is led by some of the UK’s foremost internationally recognised research active staff, based 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 evolutionarily informed organismal biology and run research projects around the world, from 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 evolutionary biology. The programme encourages an interdisciplinary approach and you will be exposed to a wide range of theoretical and practical techniques used to study evolutionary biology.Why study Evolutionary Biology at the University of Exeter?•led by some of the UK’s foremost evolutionary biologists studying topics from the evolution of sex and sexes to the extinction of species•undertake challenging research projects at the cutting edge of your field•work with state-of-the-art facilities and equipment•the only degree in the UK dedicated specifically to Evolutionary Biology•graduate with outstanding employment prospects
