Marine Biology and Zoology
This specialist joint honours degree is taught between the Schools of Ocean Sciences and Biological Sciences. The Marine Biology element covers animals, seaweeds, plants and microbial life in the seas and their interactions. The Zoology part covers all animals whether on land or in water. The degree therefore gives a wide overview of the diversity of animal life and ecosystems on this planet, ranging from the mountains to the deep sea trenches. The course shows how interactions between animals and their environments apply equally to marine, terrestrial and freshwater habitats. You will be introduced to the fundamentals of biology, ecology, and evolution of marine organisms and all animal groups. In addition, more applied aspects such as aquaculture and fisheries, parasitology and immunology are covered.
There is also a 4-year Master of Marine Biology MMBiol option available. In Year 4 of the Master of Marine Biology, you will carry out a substantial piece of research which forms your Year 4 dissertation.
Location: Most lectures are held in Bangor. Some 3rd year lectures and all practicals are held at the Menai Bridge site.
