We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Zoology study the classification and understanding of different animal species. They train students to appreciate the diversity of Earth’s fauna, with opportunities to specialise in areas such as animal evolution, behaviour and ecology.
Courses in this field may also incorporate elements of Ecology, Taxonomy and broader Animal Sciences. Entry requirements will usually include an undergraduate degree in Biology or another relevant science.
Masters-level courses in Zoological Science are well suited to Biological Science students seeking to specialise further at postgraduate level. Some offer a general grounding in Zoology, but most have a specific focus in the understanding and classification of specific species (and / or their environments).
As a result, postgraduate Zoology is as diverse as the animal kingdom itself. Whatever your specific interest, it’s probably reflected in one or more of the courses below.
Employment opportunities and outcomes are equally varied. You’ll be well equipped for PhD research, perhaps leading to an academic career. Alternatively, you could work for a range of organisations, from research centres to conservation groups. And yes, you could potentially end up working at a zoo.
