Course summary

Have you always wanted to work with animals? If so, this degree is for you.Zoology is literally all about animals. On this degree you will receive a thorough grounding, exploring the diversity of animal form and function and the evolution and ecology of the major animal groups. You will also consider applied aspects of zoology such as parasitology and the interaction between animals and their environment. You will have the opportunity to acquire a broad range of laboratory and field experience, at home and abroad, whilst acquiring transferable skills associated with scientific training (such as; data analysis, writing and presentation skills, IT skills and experience of independent and group-working). You will have access to a spread of Zoology modules covering both vertebrates and invertebrates, as well as a suite of specialist Animal Management modules, designed specifically for this degree programme.This programme presents a comprehensive, scientific approach to animal management, through the synthesis of multidisciplinary and specialist zoology modules. Central to this programme are two modules exploring research-informed approaches to animal management, including key concepts such as; animal husbandry, animal health, nutrition, behaviour, training, facility management, commercial farming and zoo management. Many sessions are applied, incorporating a range of examples from animal collections, aquaria, laboratory facilities and the commercial farming industry. The assessments on these modules are designed around real-world applications of animal management, with a particular focus on preparing you for a career within the industry and enhancing employability. Between the second and third year, you will complete an animal husbandry placement of your choice, which will enhance your employability through the acquisition of hands-on experience. In your final year, you will use your comprehensive knowledge of this area to design and carry out an original research project.If this sounds like the degree for you, then be sure to pack your wellington boots! Our University farm, Henfaes Research Centre is central to our specialist modules, giving you the opportunity to apply your knowledge and develop practical skills. There will also be many visits to our neighbouring zoos and field sites. Seminar sessions incorporate a range of external professionals working in the animal industry, alongside our own animal technicians – providing you with fantastic network opportunities and support and insight into career pathways, post-graduation. The programme director for this degree has experience of working within the zoo industry and has developed our animal management modules with the aim of enhancing student employability within this field. In additional to a range of external seminars from professionals within the industry, we have links with the following organisations: Welsh Mountain Zoo, Chester Zoo, Knowsley Safari Park, Anglesey Sea Zoo.‘Placement Year’ and 'International Experience Year’ options are available for this course. You will have the opportunity to fully consider these options when you have started your course at Bangor and can make an application for a transfer onto such a pathway at the appropriate time. You can find more information about these options on our website and if you have any questions, please get in touch.If you don’t have the required qualifications for this degree-level course or are looking to re-enter education after time away from study, then a Foundation Year Programme might be the right choice for you.
