Where will this take me?


After completing the Zoology major in the Bachelor of Science, you’ll be well placed to move into the workforce, further study, or graduate research.

Career outcomes

You could pursue careers in animal biology, biomedical and bioinformatics research, ecotourism, conservation, wildlife management, education or resource management.

You can find our graduates working as zoologists, ecologists, biosecurity officers, environmental consultants and more.

Further study

You can complete an honours year in Zoology as part of your Bachelor of Science, or you can immediately move into graduate studies.


If you wish to continue your studies at graduate level, this major is a great lead-in to many specialist science and environment degrees.

Graduate degrees you could consider include:

Depending on the subjects you take in your undergraduate degree, a range of other graduate degrees may be possible – in fields as diverse as medicine, science and technology, health sciences, teaching, law, business, humanities and more.


If you complete an honours year or a masters course with a significant research component, you can go on to study a PhD (Doctor of Philosophy), or another graduate research program.

This will set you up for a rewarding career in research with a university, research institute, zoo or wildlife sanctuary.
