MSci Biological Sciences

This is a four-year programme which starts by giving a broad understanding of the biological sciences including evolution, ecology, biochemistry and cell and molecular biology. You will also receive training in essential scientific methods and techniques, including applied maths and statistics. You then begin to specialise in either Plant Science or Microbiology in years 2 and 3, culminating with an advanced project in your specialism in year 4. Plant Science or Microbiology are explored at an advanced level in this programme. This occurs through a wide range of modules encompassing the molecular biology, biochemistry, physiology, genetics, evolution, ecology, and the environmental factors affecting plants for the Plant Science specialism, and the pathological, biochemical, genetic and molecular aspects of microorganisms for the Microbiology specialism. Both benefit from collaboration with our partners at the world-class research institutes the John Innes Centre, The Sainsbury Laboratory and the Institute of Food Research, whom, with the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital and the University comprise the Norwich Research Park. The Research Park is home to Europe’s largest collection of plant and microbial scientists. A number of our students take this unique opportunity to undertake casual work or summer placements across the Park, gaining valuable extra-curricular experience of plant biology or microbiology in its most modern idiom **Course Structure** Year 1 is common to both Plant Science and Microbiology Specialisms. You will study a common broad first year for both Plant Science and Microbiology specialisms which covers all the essential areas underpinning plant science and microbiology including evolution, ecology, biochemistry and cell and molecular biology. Towards the end of your first year you will select your specialism and follow one of the pathways. **Disclaimer** Course details are subject to change.
