At our Cornwall Campus we have one of the largest groups of scientists specialising in animal behaviour, ecology and conservation and this degree builds on our internationally recognised expertise in this field. It focuses on an understanding of animal biology, with an emphasis on whole animal biology, ecology and behaviour, and the evolution of animal life histories. Like our other Cornwall-based degrees, the BSc Zoology involves a significant field work component. It will be of interest to students seeking graduate careers in both human and veterinary sciences, as well as in animal ecology and behaviour. This programme is available as a four year degree with the third year spent studying at a partner university abroad.
If you choose the four year MSci programme (available for 2014 entry) you will spend your fourth year on two projects focused on a specialised area aligned with one of our leading research groups, one of which will be in partnership with an external organisation, plus a two week intensive field course.
