What will you study on the BSc Biology (Environmental Biology)?
In the first year the focus is upon key themes of biology, from molecular to whole organism biology with inorganic and organic chemistry to support studies in Year 2 and 3. In Year 2, additional core modules develop field and ecology skills (Ecology and Field Techniques) and Biodiversity (Biodiversity). Core modules in Year 3 include evolution (Evolution) and conservation (Conservation in a Changing World).
Field work and field visits are a central part of the course. You will focus on skills associated with data/sample collection, analysis and ideas for innovative research projects. Additional emphasis is placed upon building effective team working skills and learning to work safely in potentially hazardous field environments.
What will you gain?
Each biology pathway focuses on core disciplines of biology including plant and animal biology, cell biology, microbial sciences and molecular biology. You will develop laboratory, field work and research methodology skills to prepare you for your career, or postgraduate study.
