Course Information

Our modules are informed by staff actively researching in their specialist areas, introducing you to science principles to help you develop analytical skills and encourage you to evaluate and recommend solutions to real-life, local to global, biological problems.

Biology’s role in society is explored through this course. Geographical Information Systems (GIS) are used to examine large biological data sets at all three stages in the course. We believe that the skills in managing big data, analysing spatial relationships and thinking about biological problems at different scales are skills that biologists will need in the future either in biological conservation or human health.

The first year focuses on fundamental principles, including research methodology, statistical analysis of data, and presentation of results for a variety of audiences, all of which will be used throughout the course and beyond. In the second and third year you are able to specialise and focus on areas that you are particularly interested in.
