Zoology

Zoology

Do you like the sound of studying animal behaviour in an exotic location, or working in wildlife conservation? To take a zoology course you'll need an aptitude for science as you'll be studying animal anatomy and physiology, genetics and cell biology as well as animal behaviour and ecology. Graduates from zoology courses work in lab-based research posts as well as field research and in conservation and environmental management (perhaps in that exotic location, or a little closer to home...).
