Course content


The southwest of Western Australia is a global biodiversity hot-spot. The University of Western Australia is perfectly positioned to use the fauna of this region in the training of Zoologists.

Zoologists are concerned with theoretical topics as diverse as molecular evolution, anatomy, physiology, reproduction, behaviour and community ecology, and with applied aspects that range from fauna conservation and pest management to stream ecology and water quality studies.

The Master of Biological Science, with a specialisation in Zoology, will provide you with a comprehensive understanding of the structure, function, diversity and evolution of animals, as well as the interaction of animals with each other and the environment.

Course description, features and facilities

The Zoology specialisation provides you with the opportunity to study animals and their habitats, including Western Australia's exciting fauna. These habitats are diverse, and range from deserts through to temporary wetlands and rain forests. Zoologists discover the solutions to the problems presented by these habitats.

This specialisation integrates theory with practical (both field and laboratory) studies utilising many of the animals and ecosystems from the diverse state of Western Australia as examples.

The Faculty is well equipped for teaching with animal houses, controlled temperature rooms and access to Rottnest Island and the Harry Waring Marsupial Reserve. We are supported by three world leading research centres:
The Centre for Evolutionary Biology,
The Oceans Institute,
Centre of Excellence in Natural Resource Management.

Domestic students may be eligible for a Commonwealth supported place within this course.

International students may be eligible for scholarships:
