Zoology is the study of animals at all levels, from their evolutionary origins, molecular and cell biology to their physiology, behaviour and ecology.

This course provides you with an insight into a wide range of animals and their effects on the human world. You’ll undertake an independent research project and have the option of taking a field course in South Africa.

You’ll likely encounter issues for which you will have had no formal training. This may be in treatment of unusual illnesses, parasites or animal bites, occupational health issues or animal care and treatment procedures.

This degree will give you a strong grounding in essential zoology to allow you to make better informed judgements during your career.

You’ll also be introduced to the design and statistical analysis of your own experiments so that you can more objectively analyse the medical and vetinary literature.
