You will explore a variety of topics which will prepare you for a career in zoology ranging from ecology, animal behaviour, animal welfare, genetics and evolution. Successful completion of this course will set you up to moving onto the optional top-up year where you will investigate and discuss some more in-depth topics such as the role of Zoos and Aquaria in the 21st Century as well as explore some of the modern methods used across a variety of zoological disciplines.
