Marine Vertebrate Zoology
The Schools of Ocean Sciences and Biological Sciences jointly teach this specialist single honours course, which is a unique course in the UK. This degree incorporates a wide overview of marine organisms, their habitats and the food web supporting the top predators, including fishes, seabirds, reptiles, seals and whales. During the degree, the general principles of biology, marine biology and marine science will be explored, with the taxonomy, physiology, behaviour and ecology of marine vertebrates highlighted. Opportunities will be presented to consider applied aspects of zoology such as fisheries, aquaculture, conservation biology and ecotourism.
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.
