The Department of Zoology and Entomology offers modules towards three majors in the Bachelor of Science programme: Ecology, Entomology and Zoology. The first and second year of each programme is similar, with students taking a broad range of modules to build a strong backgroud in the natural sciences. In the third year, students begin to specialise in their respective fields.
BSc in Ecology
This major is for students who want to understand how animals and plants interact with each other and the natural and human environment. In addition to modules on animals, students take a number of modules on plant diversity and ecology in the third year.
BSc in Entomology
This major is for students with a fascination for insects, wanting to control insect pests of agriculture, forestry, and households, wishing to reduce transmission of vector-borne diseases, or want to become forensic entomologists, quarantine officials, or environmental consultants and managers. Topics covered are similar to those in a Zoology major, but there is a focus on insect diversity and management.
BSc in Zoology
This major is ideal for students with a passion for the biology, diversity, and conservation of wild animals. Students cover topics including physiology, behaviour, diversity and evolution, population and community ecology, and animal conservation in the face of human disturbance and exploitation.
