Course overview

Despite advances in technology and research techniques, there still remains much to discover about the marine habitats and organisms that exist on our planet. In this degree you will explore the nature of different marine environments and the ecosystems that operate within them. In the Natural History element, the focus is very much on learning to identify different species in their wild habitats and on assessing the conservation status of both habitats and species. Field study trips will give you the opportunity to visit a range of habitats, both inland and coastal, and to apply research techniques in a practical environment.

Zusätzliche Informationen

Career opportunities: The Marine Biology pathway is designed to broaden the interests of students who may be studying on ecological pathways or those with more interest in animal behaviour. Potential employers of 'ecological' students include government agencies, environmental consultancies, wildlife conservation organisations, educational and research establishments and some kinds of industries. Students with a behaviour background are more likely to find employment in zoos, education or animal welfare charities.
