Overview

Did you know that some female lizards can clone themselves? That some baby spiders practise ‘matriphagy’ – eating their mothers after birth?

The Zoology major gives you the option to study animals at every scale, from the biology of cells to the behaviour of whole populations.

We’re not promising you’ll be the next Sir David Attenborough, but he did study zoology at university, so it’s a start!

Within this major you can choose to focus on animal biology, animal behaviour, wildlife biology, reproduction and development or a combination that suits you.
