What you'll learn on the course
Did you know certain female lizards are able to clone themselves, a baby bandicoot is born after only 12 days of pregnancy and that some baby spiders practice ‘matriphagy’ - eating their mothers after birth?
This major will introduce you to the complexities of animal systems by integrating knowledge from the biology of cells to the behaviour of whole organisms. You can choose to specialise in Behavioural Ecology, Reproductive Physiology or Wildlife and Conservation, and combine this with subjects from a wide range of biological disciplines. Practical experience in zoological research will provide valuable skills for the workplace.Careers
Zoology is an amazingly broad discipline. You can enter careers or research in many areas including:
- Animal biology
- Wildlife management
- Biomedical and bioinformatics research.
The generic skills gained in zoology can also provide opportunities in many other industries such as education and business.
