Biology and Ecology - University of Worcester

Joint honours are ideal for students who wish to combine two areas of equal interest or who would benefit from the greater flexibility offered by studying the two subjects together. Biology and Ecology combined is an ideal choice for students wishing to gain a greater understanding of biological systems accompanied by a specific focus on ecology. The Biology modules enable you to understand how both plants and animals function, from the molecular level upwards, and how this links to the survival strategies allowing them to live and reproduce in their specialised niches. Biology modules include genetics and conservation, bioinformatics, animal behaviour, plant biology and plant physiology and development. Biology also allows you to develop many laboratory skills which should be useful in your career. The Ecology modules allow you to learn about landscape and restoration ecology, applied GIS, and freshwater ecology, as well as developing survey skills specific to the sector. At the University of Worcester you will be provided with an unrivalled amount of hands-on ecological and biological experience, coupled with invaluable underpinning knowledge. Your learning will also be enhanced by Worcester’s superb proximity to numerous sites of high wildlife value, including nature reserves, Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONBs). Contrasting environments further afield can also be explored during a residential field trip to France. The University’s laboratories meet modern expectations for professional laboratories with two dedicated laboratories for student research in addition to those used for teaching. This Worcester course covers a wide range of topics from how to support pollinators in the UK, conserving orangutans in Borneo, genetics and conservation, to genomics & bioinformatics. The extensive range of modules available enables the course to be tailored to meet your own requirements. At Worcester, you get
