Explore current developments and issues in the biological sciences to gain a strong foundation in a scientific discipline for further study, research or professional development. This four year degree integrates a three-year BSc Biological Sciences degree with a final year of training in Masters-level scientific skills. Capture the essence of life and living organisms with this fascinating integrated BSc and Msc Biological Sciences degree, exploring the molecular, cellular and organismal biology essential for understanding modern biology. You will develop skills and understanding right across the biological disciplines. You will study rapidly-developing areas such as biotechnology, which harnesses cellular and bimolecular processes to develop technologies and products to improve our heath, and recombinant DNA technology, which are DNA molecules formed by laboratory methods to create new sequences of DNA. You will also develop your understanding of traditional aspects of animal and plant biology and learn about the diversity and evolution of life. This course offers you the opportunities to work in our state-of-the-art laboratories, participate in field trips, and conduct your own research projects. We offer exciting modules such as ‘Chemistry of Life’ where you will work in the laboratory to study the structure, evolution and biochemistry of the cell, ‘Human Ecology’ where you will learn the essentials of human diversity and adaptation, or ‘The Brain in Health and Disease’ where you will study the basis of neurobiology and the latest developments in brain research.
