Zoology with Climate Change Studies - Bangor University

This course provides traditional zoology (taxonomy, morphology, development, physiology and cell biology) with an emphasis upon animal ecology, biodiversity, and evolution. In addition you will take courses providing an appreciation of the need for a detailed understanding of global climate change and the impact of those changes upon the animal life on the planet. To this end the course establishes links between the academic learning environment and external environmental and research organisations in the form of project work and practical management plans. You will acquire a broad theoretical understanding of zoology and the drivers of climate change plus the acquisition of associated practical skills. Along with a comprehensive range of transferable skills, this degree will equip you with skills for employment in a career in environmental research and conservation – especially in relation to the impacts of climate change. You will benefit from the proximity of an exceptional range of terrestrial, marine and freshwater habitats where field work, which is an integral part of the degree is conducted. Bangor is also home a range of organisations involved in climate change research. These include the divisional offices of the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology (CEH), Natural Resources Wales (NRW), as well as the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB), all of which have close links to the University and staff associated with this course. Biological Sciences is also part of the Environment Centre Wales.
