Masters Degrees in Behavioural Biology

We have 39 Masters Degrees in Behavioural Biology

Masters degrees in Behavioural Biology explore the behavioural strategies which organisms employ in response to influences from their natural environment, to maximise survival. This includes training postgraduates in the advanced study of social and reproductive behaviour, foraging patterns, predator response, communication, and migration. Research programmes such as MRes and MPhil courses are highly popular in this field, though taught MSc degrees are also available.

Why study a Masters in Behavioural Biology?

## Degrees in this area do not always explore the typical ‘nature versus nurture’ approach. Masters courses in this field allow you to engage with a range of specialisms in human and animal behaviour. Most degrees offer multidisciplinary approaches, drawing on theory from the humanities and social sciences as well as biological and chemical sciences. Careers in this field are highly varied and will depend on where your interests lie. If you decide to focus on human behaviour, you may work towards a career in the justice system, education, or social work and counselling. If animal science is your preferred route, you could work towards careers in zoo keeping, conservation, and breeding programmes. A Masters in Behavioural Biology is also excellent preparation for further research at PhD level.
