Explore the key concepts of ecology and learn how organisms behave, evolve and interact with their physical and biological environments. You will study with world-leading researchers from the Schools of Biological Sciences, Environmental Sciences and International Development, and from the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research, which is based at the University. You will learn through lectures, seminars and workshops geared towards helping you understand the theory and concepts behind evolution, behaviour, ecological services, processes and conservation. You will spend time in the laboratory, developing techniques to explore ecology, from microbes and parasites to model organisms. You will also learn in the field. Here you will perfect practical field skills and survey techniques. You will learn how to design a scientific question, complete field projects and be confident in the natural environment. You could join one of our residential field trips to Europe or Swaziland. And you will take your learning to the next level by developing your own unique, independent research, working with a member of staff to understand a system using the latest scientific techniques. You will graduate as a skilled ecologist ready to take advantage of East Anglia’s wealth of varied habitats, or range further afield to countries such as Brazil, Australia and Madagascar. Enhance your studies by spending a year abroad. You will spend your third year studying at a university in Australasia, North America or Europe. You will then return to UEA to complete the final year of your degree. This is a fantastic opportunity to experience a new culture, see new ecological problems and solutions first-hand and make connections with partner organisations across the world.
