About Biological Sciences
Masters degrees in Biological Sciences explore the nature, development and behaviour of living organisms, from plants and animals to microorganisms and fungi. They provide expertise in advanced branches of biology as well as other applied fields.
It’s no cliché to say that this discipline is as diverse as life itself, exploring all aspects of human, animal, plant and micro-biology. Some courses also cross over into other disciplines, with specialisms including Biotechnology, Biophysics and Sport and Exercise Science.
Programmes may be either taught or research-based, with MSc, MRes and MPhil qualifications available, as well as Postgraduate Certificates and Diplomas.
A Masters in Biological Sciences can equip you for a range of academic and professional career paths, with a chance to make a significant difference to the lives of people and animals around the world.
You might take up a career in industry or on behalf of a charity: in fields such as public health, conservation or pharmaceuticals. With the right specialisation you could even find yourself working on biomechanics and physical therapy for a major sports team, or travelling the globe as a marine biologist.
Research careers with a Biosciences Masters degree can be just as exciting. Opportunities exist to pursue a huge range of projects at PhD level, before going on to push boundaries in the treatment of disease, the development of innovative bioengineering solutions and even the discovery of new energy sources.
