Masters degrees in Reproductive Biology equip postgraduates with a working knowledge of the reproductive functions of advanced, multicellular organisms (predominantly humans). This can include looking at mating and fertilisation processes, as well as perinatal development and birth processes.
Specialisms and related postgraduate topics include Developmental Biology, Developmental Medicine and Clinical Embryology. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Biology or Animal Science.
You will explore Reproductive Science at the cellular and molecular levels, from fertilisation right through to birth. Predominantly, you will acquire a working knowledge of genetics and genomics including chromosome theory, as well as advanced understanding of inherited traits and diseases.
This field will provide you with numerous transferrable skills including practices in laboratory techniques such as bioimaging, cell manipulation and chemical analysis, alongside computerised methods such as bioinformatics and 3D modelling.
Courses typically examine Human Reproductive Biology, but some may offer specialisation in Animal Reproductive Biology which would allow you to branch into veterinary practise. Other traditional careers include roles in clinical medicine and public health practise, but you would also be suited to managerial positions within governing bodies, medical research agencies and charities.
