The study of zoology is an exploration of how animals have evolved, how they function and the ways in which they interact with their environment. The subject integrates anatomy, physiology, behaviour, ecology, evolution and conservation to provide a comprehensive understanding of species structure and diversity.
Humans have created a rapidly changing world to which animals have had to adapt. Understanding the amazing diversity of animals that share our planet helps us to understand our origins, as well as predict future evolution.
The BSc (Hons) Zoology degree at Lincoln is taught by research-active staff who take part in internationally renowned research. The degree aims to provide a broad understanding of the subject, encompassing the study of key aspects of modern zoology in a diverse range of invertebrates and vertebrates. You have opportunities to study animals in their natural habitat at key points during your studies.
You will participate in two residential field trips in the UK, enabling you to study animals in the wild. These trips are part of two core modules: ?Ecology and Evolution' in the first year and ?Ecology' in the second year. For UK based field trips the University will cover costs of transport, accommodation and meals at the field site.
There is also an overseas field trip available in your final year as part of the optional 'Overseas Field Course' module. Further details on the Overseas Field Course, including costs, can be found in the Features tab.
