OVERVIEW
Ecology is the study of how organisms behave, evolve, and interact with their physical and biological environments. It seeks to provide the basis for understanding life’s diversity, abundance, and distribution of organisms. As an Ecology student, you will study the richness of the biosphere and how it is affected by human activities like climate change, pollution and the destruction of natural ecosystems.
This single honours programme is recognised as one of the finest and most comprehensive in the country, incorporating the teaching expertise of the School of Biological Sciences and the School of Environmental Sciences. The School of Biological Sciences brings together one of the largest teams of ecologists and evolutionary biologists in the UK in the Centre for Ecology, Evolution and Conservation.
Academics from the Schools of Biological Sciences, Environmental Sciences and International Development teach the core modules of our ecology programmes, with additional tuition carried out by scientists from the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research. You will also receive specialist teaching by the staff of our two affiliated Institutes, the Centre for Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Science and the British Trust for Ornithology, amongst other local organisations.
Our unique research opportunities allow you to study population biology, conservation and related topics. These range from the molecular genetics of populations, plant science and animal behaviour, to environmental management and aspects of economics and politics. Furthermore UEA is based in a region with a diverse range of habitats, which provides great opportunities for field-based final year projects. You are also given the chance to participate in optional field courses in East Africa in the final year.

Disclaimer
Whilst the University will make every effort to offer the modules listed, changes may sometimes be made arising from the annual monitoring, review and update of modules and regular (five-yearly) review of course programmes. Where this activity leads to significant (but not minor) changes to programmes and their constituent modules, there will normally be prior consultation of students and others. It is also possible that the University may not be able to offer a module for reasons outside of its control, such as the illness of a member of staff or sabbatical leave. Where this is the case, the University will endeavour to inform students.
