Overview: A zoology major provides a springboard for entering careers or research in many areas of animal biology, from conservation and wildlife management to the biotech, biomedical and bioinformatics industries. Graduates will be prepared for these pathways by developing skills in appropriate zoological concepts, data collection and analysis, and critical evaluation of empirical arguments. This major facilitates an understanding of the complexities of animal systems by integrating knowledge from the biology of cells to the behaviour of whole organisms, through a sequence of specialist subjects as well as integrated subjects from a wide range of biological disciplines. Students will gain experience preparing them for the workplace by first-hand experience of zoological research.
