Learn how animals relate and interact with their physical and biological environments.
You’ll investigate animal morphology, development and genetics, behaviour, ecology, physiology, biochemistry and molecular biology.Expand your knowledge of climate change biology, wildlife and conservation biology, entomology, environmental physiology, marine biology, fisheries biology and aquaculture, terrestrial ecology, molecular ecology and mathematical applications in biology.
Combine your study of animals with biostatistics, ecology, evolution, genetics and insect science and gain practical experience through field courses offered in the Australian outback, rainforests, Stradbroke Island and the Great Barrier Reef.
Zoology offers a large number of career options, ranging from field-based conservation work to biomedical research with medical laboratories and education institutions.
Alternatively, kick-start your career in research by progressing into a higher-research degree.
