The modern zoologist needs to be the master of many disciplines. Our degree course has been designed by professional zoologists with a real understanding of what the world needs from zoologists and what zoologists need to pursue a professional career. It mirrors closely the QAA Subject Benchmark Statement for Biosciences.In addition to the formal background knowledge all zoologists require, our degree allows you to explore more specialist areas. To encompass the main patterns of employment, you are given the flexibility to focus on a "whole animal" or a "bits of animals" approach. The latter provides the skills required to pursue laboratory and experimental pathways such as disease research, DNA technologies and wildlife forensics. The "whole animal" pathway trains you to become proficient in the identification and study of wild animals, especially British.From your first week, you will be exposed to animals in the wild. Practical learning will be enhanced by the local environment and students are encouraged to explore suggested sites outside of class. You will collaborate will local experts to develop general skills through the exploration of key sites and a wide range of talks. We highly recommend joining the Carlisle Natural History Society.Fieldwork will be supplemented by lab/classroom sessions aimed to give you industry-standard identification skills. Combined with the knowledge of how animals work and how to study/monitor them, you will get two opportunities to combine them in your own research efforts.The Applied Field Studies module includes an option for you to travel to a radically different environment, typically West Africa. Here, you will spend a few days becoming familiar with the local wildlife and get a chance to study a species of your choice in more detail.Previous students have studied endangered monkeys, reptiles, sharks, genets, and tropical forest birds. The experience gained on this module will prepare you for your final year dissertation, which could focus on any of the wide range of species occurring c
