We operate a modular system in which you will study six modules each year. The Biological Sciences BSc (Hons) three-year degree course has been designed to allow you more choice between modules in each successive year so that you can follow specialised routes within Biological Sciences, or address specific areas of interest, as you progress.Recommended module combinations (“routes”) to allow various themes of specialisation are available. We have specified recommended routes corresponding to the following subject areas:Biochemistry and Molecular BiologyBiomedical ScienceCell BiologyGeneticsEcology and Environmental Science.Other module combinations are possible to give courses which specialise in “whole organism” biology, or plant sciences, or microbiology. Transfer to the four-year MBiol course is possible up to the end of Year 2.**Year 1**The first year covers fundamental aspects of biology including evolution, biochemistry, molecular biology, cell biology, genetics, physiology, and an overview of the diversity of organisms, through a set of four “core” modules.The Year 1 course also includes an integrated “Scientific Skills” module which covers underpinning chemistry and maths designed to support learning in the other modules. In addition, an optional module provides an introduction to all aspects of current research in the biosciences. A language module, provided by another department, can be taken as an alternative optional module.**Year 2**The second year of the course allows you to select a degree to meet your interests and career ambitions by choosing modules from those available. Choices of modules made for Year 2 then feed forward into the third year. There is a wide range of module themes.A Year 2 support module, “Research Skills” is also offered, in which skills required for research-led learning at Year 3 are covered. As in Year 1, learning is supported by a module-linked tutorial system.**Year 3**Year 3 of the degree places the strongest emphasis on research, with taught content directly linked to research being carried out in the Department. You will undertake three major pieces of work, each constituting its own module; a workshop/field course, a literature review and a research module.The “Workshop” (laboratory based) or “Field Course” (field-based) module both involve research experience; field courses are currently held in South Africa or Scotland (residential field courses can incur an additional fee, which ranged from £150–£750 in 2017).The "Literature Review" module involves the study of current research literature in a topic area selected by you, under personal supervision. The final year of the BSc (Hons) also includes the research module, which can be: a five-week laboratory or field-based Research Project; "Biological Enterprise", where you will develop the science and business case for a potential biotech-based product; "Biology into Schools", where you will gain hands-on practice of teaching at primary school level; or "Contemporary Issues in the Biosciences", where you will gain experience in the communication of bioscience by the production of a report.In addition, you will study three modules linked to your interests from those offered. The Year 3 taught modules cover a wide range of topics.**Study Abroad**You may be able to take a year abroad between the second and third year at a selected partner university in a range of overseas destinations (including Canada, Australia and China). The year abroad is a normal year at the host institution, although marks for assessments and exams taken abroad do not contribute to the Durham degree outcome. The course leads to the award of a BSc “Biological Sciences Degree with Year Abroad”.**Placement Degrees**You can elect a placement degree route, by transfer to
