Zoology - University of Plymouth

The BSc (Hons) Zoology programme is designed to provide you with the biological expertise to be a professional zoologist with a broad knowledge of animal biology. Key features are: • a strong foundation in theoretical aspects of ecology, physiology, anatomy, behaviour, evolution and genetics; • high level practical and theoretical skills across animal biology in a wide range of taxa and habitats • in-depth field study of animals, including residential courses in the UK and abroad, that develop field techniques and familiarity with a wide range of ecosystems and fauna; • practical experience and skills development in analytical techniques employed by practitioners working within animal biology • the use of external organisations in modules such as the Wildlife Trusts, the Natural History Museums in London and Plymouth, the National Marine Aquarium, the Field Studies Council, Whitley Wildlife Trust, Dartmoor National Park, the Donkey Sanctuary; • The opportunity to take a placement year at the end of the second year either in the UK or abroad and • opportunities to explore current contemporary issues in zoology; Staff at Plymouth have a wide range of Zoology expertise, therefore unlike many competitor programmes the degree will contain modules that focus on ‘animal biology’ across marine, terrestrial and freshwater aquatic habitats. A key feature of our programme will be our close access to all of those habitats
