About Zoology at University of Lincoln

The MBio Zoology degree at Lincoln is an exploration of how animals have evolved, how they function and the ways in which they interact with their environment. The course 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.

This 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. As you study, you will have the chance to develop skills in scientific methods and communication, which are invaluable in many workplaces.

Our Zoology academics participate in internationally renowned research, in areas including reproduction, evolutionary ecology, sensory biology, population genetics, palaeontology, behavioural ecology and ethology. Dr Fernando Montealegre- Zapata recently published his ground-breaking research into hearing in katydid insects in the influential journal, Science.

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.
