Biological sciences are at the heart of many global challenges, including food security, sustainable development, climate change and biodiversity management.
This course provides training in the breadth and depth of whole-organism biology. You can develop a wide range of knowledge across the discipline through our general biological sciences pathway, or you can specialise in one of three major areas through dedicated pathways in:
- Evolutionary Biology
- Plant and Crop Science
- Biodiversity and Conservation
Teaching and research in the Department of Animal and Plant Sciences extends from cell, genes and biotechnology to communities, ecosystems, conservation and climate change.
Whichever pathway you choose, you'll be learning about the latest research in the field from the experts who are making the discoveries first-hand.
You’ll learn through a combination of practical and field classes, individual research projects, lectures, seminars, tutorials and discussion groups.
Assessment includes, but is not limited to, oral presentations, essays, reflective journal entries, examinations, coursework, policy briefing notes and a dissertation.
