BSc Zoology

Zoology is literally ‘all about animals’. Students receive a thorough grounding in general zoology, exploring the diversity of animal form and function, and the evolution and ecology of the major animal groups. Through a series of individual modules which offer an element of choice, students will cover both invertebrate and vertebrate zoology and consider applied aspects such as parasitology. We offer several opportunities to carry out field studies, both home and abroad, and to work in a research laboratory. Detailed course syllabus is available here.
